cooperation with his fellows and a partial submission of his own in-

needs. An increasing portioji of his time was released Irom the htr-

able for other tasks. All the fine works and achievements of mankind 
can rightfully be considered a result of these improved conditions.

terests of their fellows, and that they could be fulfilled more easily 
through cooperation. Tbis situation remains true lor all men lor all 
time. 

Nevertheless, in spite of those accomplishments achieved through 
mutual cooperation, a tremendous task remains before us. The crea-

These are outlaw methods, scorned by the majority of stable 
and free-thinking men. The promises of peace and coopera- 
tion must now enlighten the thinking of all humanity. All 
strife, all disharmony, must be exterminated before the ultimate 
realization of a world encompassed with enlightened thinking is 
reached. This is our task today, a task never fully attempted before, 
a task requiring dedicated and untiring effort. 

The necessity for all nations to live together in liarmony has sig- 
nificantly increased since yesteryear. It now has become a luatter of 
survival. Though force, in past centuries, could produce tangible re- 
sults for the victor, each new development in the instruments of war 
has lessened the chance of successful recourse to it. Science has pre- 
sented us with the prospect of a war that will know no victor. 

Moreover, the technological advances of recent years have so shrunk 
the distances separating nations, that the affairs of one nation are 
most definitely the concern of others. 

Men have grouped together and ordered their lives with laws to 
claim the benefits of unified, regulated actions. Certainly nations 
could do likewise, to the benefit of the world. 

Our own century has seen two major efforts to bring the world- 
wide community of nations into responsive, mutual accord. W e can 
only surmise at what would have been the course of events which led 
to World War II had the League of Nations been endowed with suf- 
ficient effectiveness to maintain peace and order. Its successor, the 
present United Nations, although profiting from the mistakes of the 
past and growing stronger through each crisis, still has not brought 
about the world unity to which it aspires. 




But the pattern is becoming more clear: the habit of settHng 
international differences at the conference table is becoming 
more engrained. Both of these organizations, the League of 
Nations in leading the way. and the United Nations in its present ef- 
forts, represent the great beginning of a world of cooperation, of 
mutual endeavor to promote harmony, to establish orderly and civi- 
lized arbitration and to provide for the help of one for another. They 
mark progress. 

The lawful order which such organizations represent is an edu- 
cational force which will acclimate the world to such thinking, 
and hasten the realization of harmony in the interest of all mankind. 

Perhaps the greatest successes of the League of Nations and the 
United Nations have been within their social and economic activities. 
In the world of international politics, they have been less successful. 
The reason for this is clear. While there is general world-wide accord 
in the desire to eliminate ignorance, pestilence and famine, the nations 
of the world still diverge greatly in their respective political aims. To 
obtain cooperation among nations despite these individual political 
differences is the task now facing our civilization. By accomplishing 
this, man will have won his greatest battle for universal peace and co- 
operation. But because of the very greatness of the task, victory is 
so much more difficult to gain. It will take a complete mutual un- 
derstanding among nations, an understanding that our earth has 
never seen. It will take great leaders with the highest character, along 
with the efforts of every member of every nation. It will necessitate 
sacrifices and compromises by all parties, but the reward is so pre- 
cious, so welcome, that the battle is well worth the effort. 

To the victory of world peace and cooperation over violence and 
chaos, to that ideal is this book dedicated. We all look forward to the 
day when the just hopes of all mankind are realized: those hopes of 
mutual understanding, benefit, and aid. When these are fulfilled, and 
only then, it can be said that man has truly progressed.

A 



s we think upon the ways of our present world, we can easily 
see that the "splendid isolations" and "non-entanglements" 
of yesteryear are gone. The immeasurably huge globe has be- 
come an easily travelled, almost completely accessible sphere in which 
the many nations must carry out their business only a few hours away 
from each other. The policies of each of these nations has its effect 
upon those of her fellow countries. The common goals toward which 
these nations should be striving are world co-operation, mutual un- 
derstanding in the interest of all nations, and the ideal of lasting peace. 

But lasting peace is not insured today. That is for tomorrow. 
We must continuously stand ready to preserve our rights in order 
that those individuals who are at present denied these same rights 
may gain their inherent freedoms. We must have leaders who believe 
in these freedoms, and who can see the future peace. 

These leaders have no easy task, for many elements in the world 
today seem to trample the word "peace," and world-wide co-operation 
seems but a misty dream. A man must have strong character and un- 
bending principles to face these facts and yet keep the goal in sight 
in order that the universal hope be ultimately realized. The leaders 
of our world must have this character and those principles so that 
we may be guided on the right course. Theirs is a back-breaking job. 
a discouraging one. one of little tangible reward, yet a job so necessary. 

In this section, we present some of the many leaders who have 
shouldered this imposing task. Their road has been a difficult one, 
but a road they have travelled with strength and character. May they 
continue to lead us on this path, so that someday our dreams and the 
dreams of all peoples for enduring peace and a co-operative globe 



may become a reality.

Section Edited bv ^B hAKI. JAMES LEES 



From all corners of the nation and all walks of life we came. We 
were seagoers and farmers, athletes and scholars. We were 
rich and we were poor. We were military men and civilians. 
We are perhaps one of the best cross-sections of American youth 
that can be found anywhere, yet our purpose is one. To serve our 
country in peace and war to the utmost of our ability. 

We are all individuals with our different personalities, desires, 
and ideals, but with only one main task. We laugh at different ideas 
yet our ultimate goals are much the same. We are many, yet we are 

From the beginning of Plebe Year when we grouped together 
to face the onslaught, we have worked together, played together, 
eaten together, marched together. Bancroft has crowded us into 
almost a family unit where each other's victories and defeats are 
seen and heard. Joys and sorrows are shared freely, and friendships 
are made that, bonded by four years of close cooperation, can never 
be forgotten. The memories of our life here will never leave us, and 
as we spread throughout the world, many times these memories will 
be relived. In every corner of every ocean, into every part of every 
sea, our brotherhood will travel and, there, meet each other and 
reminisce of old times and old friends. 



JAMES MICHAEL ALRDRD 

West Monroe, Louisiana 




Mike came to USNA from the deep South by way of the 
Navy and NAPS. Although a confirmed member of the "Blue Tram- 
poline Club," Mike spent quite a bit of his time as a member of the 
First Company's sports squads. After taking things easy plebe year, 
he decided that this was the way to enjoy life. Mike's easy way and 
ready smile made him many lasting friends at Navy, and his ability 
to evaluate a situation, and knack of doing the right thing instinctively, 
will make him an asset to any service.

ROBERT EMERSON ALLISON 

Richlands, Virginia 

Bob came to the Academy from Richlands, Virginia. He was 
born in the Blue Ridge Mountains on January 9, 1939, which makes 
him one of the youngest members of the class. You can't miss Bob 
with his bright red wavy hair and ready smile, hie has a sharp and 
ready wit, which he brings into play on even the worst of days. Bob 
was a plebe and varsity fencer during his four years at the Academy, 
and lettered in this sport. Besides being an excellent saberman, he 
is a fine alto sax player and is a member of the concert band, which 
has played for us many times during the years. Bob is a naval air 
proponent and will report to Pensacola for flight training after 
graduation. 



ROBERT JOSEPH AMEND 

Dearborn, Michigan 

Bob, after attending various educational institutions, MIT in- 
cluded, decided that the Navy offered what he had been looking 
for, a career in Naval Air. Bob's previous training and technical 
ability have definitely enabled him to maintain an above-average 
standing in his class. He is a very unemotional individual; that is, 
with the exception of incidents such as when his Ford Motor Company 
stock dropped twenty dollars per share. Aside from these few and 
far between occurrences, his calmness on the playing field and in all 
phases of his training have proved him a worthy candidate for his 
proposed career in Naval Aviation.

RICHARD CARL ANTOLINI 

Ambridge, Pennsylvania 

Dick Antolini came to Navy with visions of winning a position 
on the starting eleven and of having a good time. The former vision 
faded for the Ambridge, Pennsylvania, halfback, although Dick was 
third string half as a plebe. Instead, the JV soccer, company soccer, 
company Softball, and battalion handball teams gained a valuable 
member. The latter vision, however, has been with Dick throughout his 
four years at USNAY, even during that non-dragging plebe year, hlav- 
ing good grades, our boy has spent most of his weekend time after that 
with his OAO. Although he has not decided for certain, the tin can 
navy looks pretty good to Dick, but Navy Air may get him yet. 



Whoever does get him though, 
also quite a few laughs.

ALBERT ANTHONY ARCUNI 

Greenwich, Connecticut 

Any challenges, be they in the classroom, on the athletic fields, 
or in human nature and relations, were right up Albie's alley. An excel- 
lent academic record and three years of solid performances for Navy 
Tech's track team, as well as the lease of his fine voice to the An- 
tiphonal Choir, occupied Al's time rather fully. Still he could be found, 
in his spare moments, with a favorite pipe in hand listening to soft 
music and looking forward to a future which includes an attractive 
Connecticut school teacher. Quick wit and a friendly spirit are Albie's 
dominant traits. Full of willingness, perseverance, and the desire to 
make every job done a good one, he sets an enviable example for all to 
follow. 






STANLEY JEFFERSON BAILEY 

East Aurora, New York 

Having left many broken hearts behind in East Aurora, Jeff 
soon became known as a guy who would always come through a tough 
skinny exam or a trying football weekend, battle scarred, but ready 
to get em again. In aiding the Third Company's successful drives 
for the colors, Jeff burned up the football field as the booming 
fullback. Although the 4.0's did not come as easily as the touchdowns, 
he was able to maintain a respectable academic average throughout 
his four years. On the lighter side, not many of us will forget that 
June Week night when Jeff returned minus both his shoes. Jeff's per- 
severance, coupled with his inherent congeniality, gives him a sound 
basis for a successful career as an officer.

WILLIAM COOK BALLARD 

St. Petersburg, Florida 

Bill came to the Naval Academy after a year of indoctrination 
in the good life at Duke University. The shock of the change was 
lessened upon his discovering the Academy's fleet of fine yachts. 
Sailing, along with some wrestling during the cold months, has been 
his favorite sport. Bill has remained a true son of Florida, and has never 
been ahle to understand why people live further north than his be- 
loved state, hfe plans on a hitch with the destroyer fleet and then, 
with luck, submarines. 




LARRY EDWARD BARRINGER 

Bessemer City, North Carolina 

"Let's go see Bare," was the popular cry when a tough steam 
assignment had us snowed. Larry's solutions may have differed from 
those of the book, but they seemed to produce the right answer. 
A year at North Carolina State prepared our "Charlie Brown" for a 
Superintendent's List berth at the Boat School. Bare's Bessemer City 
hiigh School career on the gridiron was continued on our battalion 
team, and his talents graced the fieldball battlefield as well. Plans 
for the future include attack squadrons of Navy Air, and maybe a 
wife, if he ever finds the right girl. 






LEELAND MILLARD BATHRICK 

Barrlngton, Illinois 

Lee's main desire in life is to get ahead. Planning to enter 
submarines and work for his master's degree in electrical engineering, 
Lee belonged to the automotive and electrical engineering clubs at 
the Academy, hlis interests include sports, especially golf, mechanics, 
photography, and building hi-fi equipment. Before coming to the 
Academy at the tender age of seventeen, Lee received All-State 
honorable mention for two years in football. However, his interest in 
athletics changed to boxing and company soccer while at the Acad- 
emy. Known for his ability to produce drags for anyone interested, 
only once has he come close to receiving a brick himself.

Baldwin, Wisconsin 

"Beck" hails from the great western state of Wisconsin. He

of midshipman life. He helped the Third Company to win the Brigade 
colors by participating in company volleyball and basketball. During 
his leaves. Beck returned to Baldwin, Wisconsin, to catch up on 
hunting and fishing, and to make all the girls back home happy again. 
"Beck" Is thinking of a career in the Marine Corps.

When Fred wasn't studying or writing to a girl, he was talking 
about oranges. Fred's Interest in this fruit had been instilled in him 
since his birth in Sebring, Florida, and he jointly owns a small orange 
grove with his brother. Trying to run an orange grove while going 
through the Naval Academy is hard enough, but Fred uses his spare 
time as an active soccer player, playing plebe, company, and bat- 
talion soccer. During the winter he played company football. Putting 
his imagination to work, he designed the class crest, which made him 
a member of our Ring and Crest Committee. Four years went fast 
for this busy lad and we expect great things from him. 



JEROME EDWARD BENSON 

Casper, Wyoming 

Jerry was born in May, 1936, in Casper, Wyoming — a long 
way from the deep water which has claimed him. A more capable 
representative of the Casper Chamber of Commerce, or a more 
capable midshipman, has never been born. Don't tangle with this man, 
as he has been a brigade and battalion boxer, a salty sailor aboard 
the schooner Freedom, and a fine student. His marvelous artwork, 
with both brush and camera, has made a place for him in the Brigade. 
Navy Line holds a claim to Jerry's future.

CHARLES ROBERT BLAIR 

Trenton, Michigan 

"Charlie Brown" came +o the officer factory from a mine- 
sweeper on the West Coast with his head glistening in the sun. As he 
says though, "I may be bald, but it's neat." Chuck has the unique 
distinction of being the only midshipman to ever send his pillow to the 
laundry. We won't say that Chuck wasn't an academic whiz, but he 
always checked the unsat list before looking at his posted marks. He 
was best known for his winning smile and good nature, and wherever 
he goes, his future looks bright. 





WARREN JENNINGS BLANKE, JR. 

Cleveland, Ohio 

Jay, as he is called by all, came to the Naval Academy after 
finishing high school at Culver Military Academy, hie has fitted easily 
into the life here with a minimum of trouble in academics. During 
the winter. Jay was hard at work for the swimming team, winning 
three varsity letters and the honor of being elected team captain 
first class year. The activities of the French Club, WRNV, and the 
Log and Splinter rounded out his extracurricular life. Jay had two 
loves here at the convent, and he was constantly dividing his time 
between them. Consequently, on weekends, if he weren't dragging, he 
was sure to be in the pad. Jay had a rich sense of humor and pro- 
vided the gang here with many good times. 







NORMAN CARL BLOOM 

Chicago, Illinois 

Norm came to the Academy after a year of pushing the 
academics In the forestry school at Michigan Tech. Although he 
soon found out that sunny Maryland did get snow, he sorely missed 
the winter sports of skiing and hockey that he'd left behind. However, 
he soon found a place on the company soccer, football, and Softball 
teams, where his ready smile and steady play were always welcome. 
Norm claims Chicago as his home town and no matter where he may 
go, he'll always be willing to tell you it is a fine liberty port.

DALLAS BENJAMIN BOGGS 

Norfolk, Virginia 

Dai's four years at the Academy represent the perfect example 
of friendship and outstanding achievement. As an athlete. Dal was a 
top competitor on the plebe swimming team and then contributed his

successful, serving on the Brigade hHop Committee for three years, 
with terms as class chairman. But It was as a friend that Dal succeeded 
best with his sincerity and wit, which were a part of his engaging 
personality, and It is this quality that will bring Dal to great heights 
as a naval officer. What more could a boy who was born and 
raised In Norfolk, Virginia, want? 



GORDON ALAN BONNEL 

West Caldv/ell, New Jersey 

Another of the straight-out-of-hlgh-school clan, Gordy faired 
quite well against all the others in academic competition. His in- 
quisitive nature always saw him with a question for which he always 
received an answer — the answer he wanted. Plebe year didn't affect 
him too much, although some were inclined to believe that Midship- 
man Bonnel, 4/c, would get his first command In the ED squad by the 
seniority rule. In athletics Gordy was a Jack-of-all-trades, and, 
although he never saw any varsity competition, he backed company 
sports to the hilt. In his spare time, which increased with the years, 
he could be seen writing his OAO or reading her letters, and no one 
ever beat Gordy to the mate's desk when the mailman arrived. 





JOSEPH JOHN BOSCO 

Bronx, New York 

Joe will best be remembered for his ready friendship, easy 
smile, and generosity. The Naval Academy inherited him from Mar- 
quette University, and he made his mark as a scholar, but his sense 
of humor was ever present, hlis willingness to help anyone with 
academics, or anything with which they might be having trouble, was 
displayed continually. It was fun just being with Joe as it was a rare 
occasion when he was not in the mood for a joke, hie will be a great 
asset to the Fleet, as he has been to the Academy, and Is a valuable 
addition to anyone's list of friends.

father was in as a midshipman twenty-four years ago. While at the 
Academy, Bobby participated in both plebe and varsity cross-country, 
along with the intramural 150-pound football squad. The fight with

JAMES WAKEFIELD BOWER 

Chester, Pennsylvania 

Jim, "Bow Wow," as his classmates sometimes call him, came

the state finals, put his ability right to work for the Naval Academy. 
Following a year of plebe ball, he moved right up to the varsity five 
and was one of the top scorers for three years. Besides basketball, 
Jim also played a mean game of tennis. His winning smile and per- 
sonality, plus his continual clowning, brought him many friends both 
on and off the basketball court. Jim plans to enter the Marine Corps 
upon graduation. 




FRANK BENJAMIN BRAUN 

Palo Alto, California 

Frank, a Navy junior, lived in many different places before his 
graduation from high school. In fact, his home town was always some- 
what of a question mark. He attended Severn Prep for a year to 
better prepare himself for the Academy. Academics were then 
taken in his stride, leaving him plenty of time for dinghy sailing, 
company soccer, and cross-country. Although Frank's weekends were 
usually spent dragging, he occasionally found time to play a round 
of golf. The French Club was of primary Importance in his extra- 
curricular activities, and he was an energetic worker on company 
projects. Frank made a lot of friends while at the Academy and 
will be remembered for his quick wit and cheerful manner.

A member of Dinty Moore's teams for three years, B. J. achieved 
his athletic fame with his midfield stick. An authority on the lesser 
traveled streets in Annapolis, he was continually hounded for in- 
formation relative to empty garages. A firm believer of 2.50 max, 
B. J. always seemed to win over the academics with a minimum of 
book time and a maximum of rack time. With his competitive spirit 
and easy going nature, Barry will be welcomed into any wardroom

THOMAS ALLAN HYDE 

Arlington, Virginia 

There was never a man who gave more of himself, while trying 
to perform a task, than Tom hiyde. Always doing things in a very 
meticulous way to the best of his ability, he Is regarded as one man 
In a million. He was the pride of his class when he was seen scoring 
touchdowns, as a youngster on the varsity football team, and con- 
tinued to be regarded as such, as can be seen by his high service 
aptitude. In the spring, he continued by honoring Navy on the varsity 
lacrosse field. As a student Tom was always way above average, and 
spent many hours helping a classmate, who was less fortunate than he. 
In understanding one of our more difficult subjects. Fortunate will be

FREDERICK BRADLEY JOHNSON 

Weston, Massachusetts 

This smiling lad who entered these portals via Bullis Prep, 
originally hailed from Weston, Massachusetts. No dry land sailor, 
Rick sailed many years before joining the crew of the Royona four 
years ago. The Musical Club Shows, Ring Committee, and Trident 
have seen much of his time and effort, especially in the field of art. 
If the Navy ever needs a public relations man, it need look no further; 
Rick, with half a chance, could sell Bancroft hfall with ease. Upon 
graduation. Rick will be doing most of his sailing under water, for 
he plans to enter the submarine school at New London. 







GAIL ALBERT KRISTENSEN 

Munster, Indiana 

Although Kris came to the Academy f/om the landlocked 
Middle West, he soon found the sea much to his liking. Battalion yawl 
and ocean sailing have been his main participation for four years, 
but he has managed to find time for stage crew, antiphonal choir, 
the Log and the Lucky Bag. When not engaged in one of these activi- 
ties, Kris could be found either dragging, or attempting to keep up 
with the academic grind. But whatever his occupation, it was always 
just a part of the means to the graduation end; an end which he 
hopes will lead to the submarine.

Len came to the Academy after a year of college at Montana 
State. Life proved to be a little more trying for Len at USNA than 
during his former college days. Academics came slow but sure to Len, 
who spent many a sleepless exam week. Music was a much easier 
application of the mind for Len, and his trumpet was well known in the 
NA-IO for four years. Len found Eastern girls somewhat different, 
but was often seen with them for that pleasant weekend diversion. 
Len could be found sparking the Fourth Company volleyball team any 
afternoon in the fall or spring. Len hopes to make Navy Air his future

life here, tHal could not choose one of the many naval careers, but 
after much deliberation, he took a very avid interest in aviation. Hal 
has a fine appreciation of music and has spent much of his free time 
practicing on the piano. With all this work, he found time to be on 
the Log and Splinter staffs and WRNV. Perhaps one of the most 
congenial persons here, he was friendly and liked by everyone. 




PORTER LEWIS, JR. 

Alexandria, Virginia 

Since Porter first saw the light of day here in sunny Annapolis, 
it is only natural that he returned to the Academy. Being a Navy junior 
only added to his desire. For his varsity sport Porter picked dinghy 
sailing, and he has participated since plebe year, braving the storm- 
tossed waters of the Severn to uphold Navy's honor on the sea. Since 
sailing, and dragging every weekend, did not occupy all of his time, 
Porter decided, graciously, to give part of the remainder to academics. 
Always willing to help a friend, Porter was well liked by those with 
whom he came in contact, with the notable exception of the plebes. 
We all join in wishing him a long and happy career in the Navy's 
Silent Service.

pany basketball, and squash, where he had the opportunity to display 
the drive and sportsmanship he possesses. His intervention in the

GILBERT THOMAS MARIANO, JR. 

Hummelstown, Pennsylvania 

Tom's greatest problem, during his four-year tenure on the 
Severn, was convincing people that there really is a place called 
Hummelstown. Aside from this ever-present difficulty, he handled 
things with ease. Tom, in fact, had a certain ease of manner that is 
hard to find. This made him invaluable as a confidant or simply as a 
friend with whom to "shoot the breeze. " But if one word were chosen 
to describe Tom it would be "sport." An excellent athlete, he was a 
standout in almost every form of battalion and company sport and 
proved himself on the football field, as a topnotch quarterback for the 
varsity ISO's. Tom has gleaned from his avid participation in athletics 
a tremendous determination to win in any field. This, combined with a 
constantly delightful personality, forms a combination one must go 
a long way to surpass.

to athletics, he was a valuable asset to such teams as the Third 
Company cross-country and steeplechase teams and was a first-rate 
defenseman on the battalion lacrosse team. Pinkie is one of the few 
who can go Into a skinny final with a 3.2 and come out with a 2.5. 
Prior to entering the Academy he was in the Marines and attended 
the Naval Academy Preparatory School. Being a staunch supporter 
of the Corps he intends to return to the Marines upon graduation. 
Pinkie will certainly be as big an asset to that fine outfit as he was 
to the Brigade.

Norfolk, Virginia, proudly claims Ray and remembers him for 
his exploits on the football field and wrestling mat. After preparing 
at Bullis Prep, Ray joined the Brigade and immediately entered the 
hospital. But he bounced back to become a prominent fixture in the

One bright summer day Steve said goodbye to his Greenwich 
Village hideaway and made the long trek to Bancroft on the Severn. 
Armed with a constant smile, which was enough to brighten the dark-

him, Steve took on Academy life with an unusual zeal, hie was a 
mainstay of WRNV through the station's hours of trial and tribula- 
tion and he was a hard worker for the Public Relations Committee. 
Steve further enriched his extracurricular activities as a Log editor 
for two years, hlis widespread Interest in Brigade affairs was, how- 
ever, secondary to his sincere interest in the people about him. hlis 
many classmates will attest to the fact that he had no casual acguamt-

CLIFFORD FRANCIS SCHUMANN 

Jersey City, New Jersey 

Cliff, often called "Rock," was undoubtedly one of the most 
personal figures in the Second Company, hlis ready sense of humor 
and application of wit towards the everyday intimacies of life within 
the system made him a popular figure among his classmates. While at 
Navy, Cliff demonstrated his athletic talents by serving on the plebe 
baseball and gymnastics teams, making the Brigade Boxing finals, and 
shortstopping a strong company "A" softball team. Extracurricular 
activities were not forgotten though, as his bongo drums, the Catholic 
Choir, and the Drum and Bugle Corps may attest, hiailing from 
Jersey City and prepping at Columbian, Cliff continually worked to 
Improve himself and to achieve a small measure of success. This has 
been more than accomplished. The Navy should be proud of a job 
well done.

His extracurricular activities consisted of being a member of the 
Portuguese Club and the Naval Academy Christian Association. A 
major part of his spare time was contributed to Academy social 
events where he could usually be seen with a nice-looking drag.

what he wants to do after graduation but whatever it is, he is certain

academics were not his only preoccupation. Company soccer, field- 
ball, and battalion soccer and crew kept his constitution hard. The 
weekends in turn softened up this granite constitution and the Class 
Ring and Crest Committee, Chess Club, and Russian Club satisfied 
his urge for the gregarious club life. Career-minded Nick looks for-

Coming to Navy after a year at both UCLA and Tokyo's 
Sophia University, Bob brought with him a willingness to do hard work. 
This was demonstrated in that the Superintendent's List seldom ap- 
peared without his name. But never one to be known as a bookworm. 
Bob busied himself with many of the company and battalion intramural

tertaining visiting teams. When Bob was around, you were always 
sure to know of the advantages of the Golden State. Bob's only

JOHN OTTO CARLSON 



Leon, Iowa 



After a year at Iowa State University, which he insisted was 
a happy one, "Joe" was sworn in as a Midshipnnan. The casual mid- 
westerner loped through his Academy years standing well in the upper 
half of his class. "Joe" is probably best known for his many hours of 
able bridge playing, prolific letter writing and other study-avoiding 
endeavors. Never one to sweat the system, "Joe" kept his warm 
sense of humor continually, and easily accumulated many friends 
throughout the Brigade. "Joe's" easy-going manner and warm per- 
sonality will, long be remembered. 



JOHN DONALD CARPENTER. JR. 

Milford, Ohio 

Jack came to us from the land of the Buckeyes, where he 
called Milford home. Continuing in his interests from high school days, 
you could always find him on the basketball court or the football field, 
where he was always adding a word of encouragement to his team- 
mates. Always game for a hand of bridge or a party. Jack soon be- 
came one of the most likeable men in the Company. As a member of 
the hop committee and chairman of the ring dance, Jack soon proved 
to his classmates that he could do the job and do it well. Navy Air 
has most certainly gained an officer who will be a welcome addition 
to any squadron.

PETER GORDON CHABOT 

Merlden, Connecticut 

The "Little Bear" came directly from high school in Meriden, 
Connecticut, in his four years on the Severn he has been a mainstay 
on the battalion football team, active in extracurricular activities, and 
a star man academically, htis intelligence, his athletic ability, and his 
personality, as well as those other qualities J. P. Jones requires of a 
Naval Officer, immediately won him the respect of his classmates. 
Thus he became one of the most popular members of his class, hlis 
outstanding characteristic has been his dependability. When assigned 
a task, he has always accomplished it efficiently. This trait, plus his 
infinite coffee capacity, will make him a welcome addition to the 
wardroom of any submarine.

JOHN HENRY CHENARD 

Bucksport, Maine 

John came to the Naval Academy from the rock-bound coast 
of Maine, and has proved himself to be a valuable asset to the 
Fourteenth Company. Since John never had any trouble with aca- 
demics here at the Academy, he had ample time for extracurricular 
activities, hie devoted most of his time to the Newman Club, the 
Brigade Public Relations Committee, and the Fourth Battalion and 
Fourteenth Company football teams. His willingness to give his all 
for these teams is certainly in evidence by looking at his nose, which 
has suffered gravely from his football experiences. Also, having been 
gifted with a great sense of humor, John was usually the instigator of 
many of our happier moments during these past four years. This trait, 
combined with his desire to do well in all that he undertakes, should 
make him a welcome addition to the fleet in the future. 




JERRY ALBERT COOPER

One of Ohio's own, Jerry came from west of the Alleghenies 
to the Chesapeake shore in pursuit of higher education in naval science. 
An avid claimant of the "Silent Service," "Coop" looks forward to a 
submarine future, having made it into a hobby. However, in spite of 
the fact that his grades were well above average, Jerry certainly 
contributed his share toward the glorification of the Blue and Gold. 
On the football field in the Fall, the return of white works found him 
far out on the Chesapeake in command of the Highland Light, aiming 
toward victory on the high seas. This familiarity with the sea, and 
respect for hard work, certainly served Jerry well toward becoming 
an outstanding naval officer. 




ROBERT ALFRED CORRELL 

Davenport, lov/a 

Bob claims Davenport, Iowa, as his home town. He Is a 
graduate of Balboa High School In the Canal Zone. As a wearer of 
the green he attained the rank of Corporal, and came to us with good 
qualifications. His concentrated effort has been on academics, but 
he found time to be one of the outstanding performers in intramural 
sports. Like everyone else, he had his troubles with the books, but he 
made it. He is a party boy, but he prefers his women in singles rather 
than crowds. We think the Navy Is getting a good man in Bob.

ROBERT DAVIDSON CORRELL 

Ann Arbor, Michigan 

Bob came to USNA from Ann Arbor, Michigan. While at the 
Academy he distinguished himself in a number of ways. As captain 
of the plebe football team he was their leading halfback, going on to 
play three years for the varsity. Active in class activities, he was 
Vice-President of the class and served on the class honor committee. 
Singing also Interested him, so he became a member of the chapel 
choir. All these activities did not bother him academically, as he was 
a star man. Bob's friendly manner and tremendous drive are certain 
to lead him io success, whatever he decides to do after graduation. 
We of the Fourteenth wish him smooth sailing and the best of luck. 




JOHN PAUL COTIS 

Bronx, New York City, New York 

John, sometimes affectionately called the "Golden Greek," 
came to the Academy with quite an interesting and varied background. 
While here, he continued to exploit his many attributes, helping to 
make those hard times at the Academy easy to accept, hlis never 
ending humor, as well as his Latin American dancing, will always be 
remembered by us all, for John had the wonderful ability to radiate 
cheer wherever he went. John's exceptional popularity seemed to 
exemp lify this. 



LAWRENCE VAL COVINGTON 

St. Louis, Missouri 

Larry arrived at Navy with an outstanding asset, a gift of gab, 
which he has used ever since. He really took to this military stuff, 
being as he had lust completed four rough years at a military high 
school. He was probably the only plebe to go through plebe year 
without saying "I'll find out, sir," he always had an answer. Larr could 
solve any problem except one, that being women, hie was always being 
chased by at least four.

BOBBY WAYNE COX 



Stamford, Texas 



Bobby came to the Naval Academy from Stamford, Texas, via 
one year at Arlington State Junior College. Although he could have 
stood higher in his class, Bobby, never one to overwork himself in his 
studies, preferred to spend a great deal of time writing letters or 
racking out. Highlighting his extracurricular activities were his four 
years as a member of the Antiphonal Choir. An active participant 
in intramural sports, Bobby specialized In battalion handball, and 
was a shotputter on the battalion track team. Bobby was known for 
his ability to meet any situation, no matter how hopeless It seemed, 
and undoubtedly this characteristic will contribute to his success during 
his career as a naval officer. 



CHARLES JOHN COX 

Primrose, Pennsylvania 

Pennsylvania lost an asset to her industry when Charley traded 
his miner's helmet for the Blue and Gold. He brought with him a 
battered old guitar and a never ending supply of good humor. Charley 
was always ready to lend a hand to anyone who asked. Academics 
were never any problem, and outside the classroom he could usually 
be found hard at work on the gridiron or In the wrestling loft. Charley's 
keen sense of fair play will make him an outstanding leader In the 
"Silent Service." 





CHARLES SAMUEL DELLA PERUTA 

Bound Brook, New Jersey 

Charlie, as he Is better known to his classmates, hails from 
Bound Brook, New Jersey, where he was an outstanding wrestler. 
Carrying this ability to the Academy, he wrestled on the plebe, 
battalion, and varsity teams, scoring many a victory. Having previously 
had two semesters at Maryland University and one at Rutgers, Charlie 
was pretty well set for academics at the Academy. Leave always could 
find him heading for home, as liberty call never slipped by this "good 
time Charlie." For the future, Charlie plans to make flying his goal, 
and If Interest is any part of success, there's no doubt that he will be 
the best. Good luck and success to a proud product of the class 
of I960.

When Angelo walked through the gates of USNA, he found 
life here quite diffe"ent from that of the town of Lorain. "Flip" lost 
his grief in a deck of cards, and when everyone else was clacking 
slide rules, "Flip" was caressing those fifty-two harbingers of evil, 
hie always seemed to have a book in his hands, but it was more often 
Goren on Bridge than math or skinny. When "Flip" wasn't participat- 
ing in the local bridge tournament, he was doing a standout job for 
the company fieldball team. A big competitor, "Flip" is certain to be 
a success in pny field he chooses. 



JOHN VIRGIL DIRKSEN 

Gresham, Oregon 

Out of the rain forests of Oregon Dirk came to the Naval 
Academy only to find he had stepped out of the frying pan into the 
fire. But never one to let a minor thing such as constant precipitation 
dampen his spirits, he was always ready with a quick comeback to 
anybody's quip. John spent a year at the foot of the enemy's camp, 
at Braden's Prep School in Cornwall-on-Hudson, before coming to 
Navy. Plebe year's spare time was spent on Upper Lawrence behind 
a first baseman's mitt, but his interests later shifted to quiet after- 
noons on the bay as skipper of a YP in the Power Squadron. This 
experience will be well used as he steps aboard that "can" after 
graduation. If all goes well, it's "New London, here I come!" 





THOMAS MICHAEL DONAHUE 

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

Tom, a graduate of Mt. Lebanon hiigh, came to the Academy 
on a congressional appointment. He still insists, however, that he was 
just another tourist in the yard, when the powers that be suddenly 
discovered that the class quota hadn't been filled. Tom soon found 
that math was to be his major academic foe, but he simply put his 
head down and continued to fight on. Football and dragging were 
two of his greatest weaknesses, and he was never one to pass up a 
chance to take liberty and get away from the system. A pleasant 
personality and good sense of judgement are two of his many at- 
tributes, which should lead to a successful service career.

statistics. Never much for the ladies, he spent most of his time playing 
battalion football, listening to the Steeler's games, occasionally hitting 
the books, and always figuring out how long It would take him to get 
to McKeesport. Easygoing "Bull" never let life in Bancroft get the best 
of him. hlis subtle humor kept his wives and classmates in high spirits. 
These same qualities that made him so enjoyable at the Academy 
should add to a very successful Navy Line career. 




ROBERT MOORE ELDRIDGE 

East Longmeadow, Massachusetts 

Four years ago. Bob arrived from the backwoods of East 
Longmeadow, Massachusetts, with his supply of King's English, and 
has ever since been endeavoring to show everyone else how our 
language should be spoken. He has worked hard on extracurricular 
activities, academics, and even harder on keeping that little black 
book swollen with names from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Scarsdale, 
New York, to Oxford, Ohio. Many a bleak morning we mids were 
greeted by his cheery, if a little groggy, voice booming out like a 
foghorn over the air waves from WRNV, the Voice of the Brigade 
of Midshipmen, and his DJ shows from Radio Free Bancroft are 
known by many. One can easily identify the profession for which Bob 
Is aiming by looking at the unique submarine tie clasp located in 
the obvious place beneath his blue service. 



JAMES FRANCIS FITZGERALD 

Naugatuck, Connecticut 

"Fitz" deserted the joys of college life, after one year at the 
University of Connecticut, to come to Navy. Youngster cruise on a

aviation summer he was a confirmed bird man. While here he par- 
ticipated In the company sports program. In the fall it was soccer, 
in the winter fieldball, and every spring he could be found with

too well with the professors at Navy, academically speaking, in some 
circles he Is considered a teacher's pet.

Quiet and sincere — this is Butch. Yet, a good man to have at

he wore stars. All these things are combined in this lad from Des 
Moines, Iowa. Butch had always wanted to come to the Academy, 
and even tried to do so after his junior year in high school, hlowever, 
the ma-th part of the exam was a bit too much for him at that time. 
The second time around was "no sweat," and soon he was being 
sworn in. The four years on the Severn went by quickly, and before 
he knew it he was throwing pennies at Tecumseh for the last time. 
After graduation, who knows? Success is assured in whatever \\e

Naval Academy, Al attended Northwestern Preparatory School. 
Blondes and sports cars are Al's two greatest weaknesses. Always a 
big hit with the fair sex, he could often be found on weekends 
dragging some sweet young thing. The Supply Corps will be getting

Softball. Off the athletic field his talents were no less, for he was a 
capable student as well as Sports Editor for the I960 Luclcy Bag. 
Jim's sphere of influence, however, was not limited to the prescribed 
seven miles. He was a lover of music, preferably music with a beat,

ALAN HENLEY KRULISCH 

Mineola, New York 

While here at his beloved home away from home Al made a 
collection of nicknames. Since they are part of his life at USNA, they 
should be recorded for posterity. They are: "Great Ace," "Big Ski 
Gonlash," and "The Flower of Mineola." Al was potentially a great 
dragger, but his motto got in his way. This famous motto was, "I can't 
be bothered." His wit continually kept his friends amused, and his 
knowledge kept his "wives" in school. Al was never too busy to lend 
a helping hand to anyone who had trouble with his studies. HHis future 
appears bright.

San Pedro, California 

The "Fisherman" hails from the home of "Moaning Maggie." 
Between tales of abalone fishing and Naval Aviation, Al could usually 
be found on the excused squad or in the local hospital, thanks to his 
never ending trials on the JV gridiron. Known affectionately as "the 
dealer," Al was always on hand with a solution to any problem. An 
ardent student, Al found little trouble with the academic grind. 
Pensacola waits with arms spread wide for this potential multl-englned

PEYTON RANDOLPH LATIMER 

Alexandria, Virginia 

Whenever Pete disclosed his hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, 
everyone guessed, and correctly so, that he was a Navy junior. As a 
plebe he was first introduced to squash, to which he quickly adapted 
his tennis playing talents, enabling him to win his "N" as a youngster. 
He was equally adept with a slide rule, and was even noticed carrying 
his slipstick to "Dago." Pete was no stranger to the Superintendent's 
List either. Youngster year he proved that academic achievement 
varies inversely with the square of the rack time. Although a consistent 
dragger, none of the opposite sex have managed to get a firm hold 
yet. It goes without saying that Pete's naval career will reflect his 
success here at the Academy.

easy-going party-boy, but to those who knew him well, he was a 
serious minded individual who held steadfastly to his convictions. He 
had the natural ability for separating the trivial from the important. 
Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, helped prepare John 
for his role as an organizer of men. Always willing to lend a helping 
hand, John pulled many of his classmates through the first year of non-

company sports, of which his favorite was soccer. Bob was never one

his name might just as well have been "Herb" as "Don," because 
his quick wit and side-splitting humor call to mind immediately those

derive a maximum from each of the courses. His ■ extracurricular 
interests were with the Foreign Relations Club and varsity debate.

Buffalo, New York 

John halls from Buffalo, New York. \ to the Academy 

upon completion of high school. A good jiuje i. especially In the 
engineering subjects of the Naval Academy curriculum, John ranted 
high among his classmates academically. Not only was he a good 
student, but a fine athlete also. As a crew coxswain for four years, 
John first led the plebes to the Intercollegiate Rowing Association 
Championship, and thereafter proceeded to coxswain the varsity 
shells for three years. A fine competitor, he took full advantage of 
the Academy's numerous athletic facilities. 



DAVID JOHN SCHNEGELBERGER 

Newark, New Jersey 

Dave sacrificed the carefree times of civilian college for the 
sterner atmosphere at Navy, and found that things moved so fast 
for him here that he never missed his old alma mater. Academics 
never troubled Dave very much, and his place as the tutor of the 
"Four Princes" was well respected. Never at a loss for an attractive 
drag, Dave managed to spread himself out among his various loves 
so well that he avoided any serious romances, and plans on life 
as a bachelor for at least thirty years. An active intramural competitor, 
Dave's athletic endeavors leaned toward boxing, and he committed 
himself very well. Dave's confident and aggressive attitude, coupled 
with his pleasant manner, will stand him In good stead in whatever 
he attempts. 




EARLE GODFREY SCHWEIZER, JR. 

San Diego, California 

"Schweiz " came to Navy via the well traveled road of the Fleet

towns, but San Diego, in his beloved land of sunshine, was his favorite. 
When he wasn't battling the academic departments, he made good 
use of his hard earned free time, contributing his talents to a large 
variety of sports. His amiable personality won him a horde of friends, 
a large percentage of which were women. With a deeply inbued love 
for the female race and a mysterious knack, he acquired more than 
his share of femmes. "Schweiz" looks to the undersea fleet for his 
future.

RICHARD NOEL SUPER 

Washington, Pennsylvania 

The Pennsylvania kid came to the Naval Academy by way of 
Bullis Prep. Varsity 150-pound football and varsity track took up most 
of the mighty mite's time and effort, but you could always count on 
him to be around when you needed cheering up. Dick loved music, es- 
pecially calypso by Belafonte. Pensacola will probably be "Supe's" 
next home away from home. The girls found Dick as hard to tackle as 
his football opponents did. Academics came in stride, perhaps be- 
cause he would always say, "It's one grade in one subject, in one day, 
in one of four long years." 



RAYNOR ANDREW KENT TAYLOR 

New Bedford, Massachusetts 

Four semesters at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute gave Ray an 
academic background which assured him a high class standing at 
USNA, as well as the loss of many free periods which he willingly 
spent tutoring floundering classmates. The last two and a half years of 
his stay at the Academy found Ray spending most of his free time 
editing the I960 Lucky Bag. hlowever, he always managed to find 
enough time for dragging, a round of tennis or handball, or a workout 
in the Macdonough hiall gym. Leave periods usually found Ray on his 
way to New Bedford and home, or to Mary Washington College. 
The Navy is Indeed fortunate in having among the names on its 
roll that of R. A. K. Taylor. 





THOMAS HENRY TEAL 



Houston, Texas 



Tom came to USNA still knocking the Texas dust from his 
shoes. For a person who lived so far from the ocean, he became 
acquainted with the Navy quickly. Tom prefers subs, and we're all 
sure that his name will rest proudly with the other greats of the 
"Silent Service." Next to chasing a soccer ball for all of his four 
years, Tom's main interest was wild parties — the wilder the better. 
We'll never forget Tom, for his sense of humor, his devotion to the 
service, and his guiding friendship.

made itself known. At the Academy, Nick found his studies a little 
difficult, but surmounted all obstacles with his customary grit and

JAMES JOSEPH TENBROOK 

Millviile, New Jersey 

Jim or "Jim Bo" as he is known to a few of us, came to the 
Academy with a dream that someday he would play for a Navy 
football team. Through his tremendous determination and drive, 
which was evident in whatever he did, he fulfilled this dream. Football 
was not the only sport at Navy which benefited from his presence, 
for he spent his dark ages on the wrestling team. Always a terrific 
companion, he seemed to add that little something that always 
made whatever you were doing complete. Although quite an athlete 
and extremely popular, Jim will always be remembered by us all 
for his true modesty and overwhelming cheerfulness, which made 
one proud to be associated with him.

from the tensions of Bancroft Hall just by being in his vicinity. 
"Trigger" was one of those lucky few who could maintain a respect- 
able average without falling behind on the latest records, or missing

Dave came to USNA from the coal region of Pennsylvania 
and when he wasn't out on the track running for the varsity or at his 
desk writing a letter he could usually be found expounding the glories 
of his hometown to a classmate. Although Dave could always be 
counted on for a good time, he was both serious and sincere in all 
his efforts, giving his all to everything he endeavored. This quality 
is sure to bring Dave much success in the future, which holds the 
promise of a fine career in the Marine Corps.

GARY THOMAS DILWEG 

Washington, D. C. 

Hailing from the nation's capital, Gary was one of those tall, 
quiet, good-looking guys. Although the academics gave him trouble 
once in a while, he still found time to play his favorite sport, tennis. 
Also no one in the PT department could deny his prowess as a 
swimmer. Unlike most midshipmen, Gary didn't spend all of his free 
time on the blue trampoline. You could usually find him reading a 
good book or catching up on world affairs during spare hours. This 
fact might explain why he was always in the cut "Bull" sections. Hlis 
eyes limit him to Navy Line or Supply Corps, but his competence will 
see him through a career in either with flying colors. 





JAMES FRANCIS DUFFY 

Chicago, Illinois 

Jim graduated from St. Ignatius hligh School in Chicago. After 
high school he went to work for the Illinois Bell Telephone Company. 
He received his appointment through the Naval Reserve. His silver 
gray hair was an object of awe and curiosity to all who knew him. 
Jim rowed 150-pound plebe crew and attained Brigade wide fame 
as a boxer, winning his N as 145-pound class champ. He was also 
a mainstay of the battalion football and water polo teams. Due to 
his many activities, including the Catholic Choir and the N Club, 
there was at times some difficulty with the studies. However, in the 
end Jim always managed to defeat his two principal enemies, math 
and "skinny." After graduation Jim plans on a career in Naval 
Aviation. 





HENRY PATRICK EGAN. JR. 

Flushing, New York 

After making quite a name for himself playing basketball for 
Niagara University, Hank headed for USNA. His greatest love, of 
course, was basketball and he proved to be a valuable asset for 
Navy. Academics came easy to Hank, leaving him time to pursue 
his literary interests. The "Ghost" had a keen sense of humor and 
a sharp wit which often made those dreary days go by a little faster. 
His easygoing manner and leadership qualities will always place him 
high in later life.

Don came to the Naval Academy fresh out of high school, 
eager and determined to make his mark at USNA. Despite his trade- 
mark, black horn rimmed glasses, "Waldo," as he is known to his 
classmates, was not regarded as an academic slash though he did 
manage to successfully avoid the ravages of math and "skinny" 
throughout his four years here. Don is noted for his good sense of 
humor and even temper. Preferring the contact sports, Don has par-

NORMAN DEAN FALK 

St. Paul, Nebraska 

Norm, a quiet-spoken lad from Nebraska, had never seen an 
ocean when he arrived and was not quite sure just what an Ensign 
was. However, he was quickly indoctrinated in the ways of the 
system. Although he probably logged more hours in the sack than 
the rest of his classmates combined, he still had time to excel in 
academics. Whenever he wasn't In the pad, he could usually be 
found feeling around for his glasses or writing to his current drag. 
hHis major interests were squash, concert band, and girls — he managed 
to hold his own with all three. Norm, with his casual manner, quickly 
made friends with everyone he met and will be long remembered 
by his classmates.

Scott City, Kansas 

Chuck was the most unpredictable guy in the class. Who 
would have thought that this slow, easygoing Kansas plowboy could 
run as fast as the stars on the steeplechase and battalion track 
teams? Who could have visualized that a lad who had never held 
hands with a girl before would wind up pinned to the nicest looking

little trouble in finding success. 





DONALD GEORGE FOERY 

Havertown, Pennsylvania 

Coming to Navy from Drexel Tech In Philadelphia, Don found 
studies rather easy. This left him with extra hours to write to his 
many girl friends all over the forty eight and in South America. A 
shoulder injury kept him off of the soccer and wrestling teams; but 
he found handball, squash, and tennis were good substitutes. Don 
also earned a reputation as a fire-eater with all of the plebes be- 
cause of his early morning activities with those who crossed his path. 
But even with all of these activities, he still set an Academy record 
as one of the best blue trampoline men in the hall. Navy Air is 
certainly going to receive a good man.

evolved from his perplexing female problems which were intercon-

precarious waters of academics. Virgil was a dangerous man in squash,

winter, and Softball In the spring. Graduation will probably find him 
heading for those golden wings of a Navy birdman with aspirations 
for a career as a test pilot. 






SPENCER JENNINGS LEECH 

Greenwich, Connecticut 

Spence came to us from Greenwich, Connecticut. A graduate 
of Tabor Academy, he found the academics at USNA easy and thus 
was able to devote much of his time to sailing. Every afternoon 
Spence could be found sailing the Severn rain or shine, gaining ex- 
perience which stood him well in the many varsity meets in which he 
participated. His unusual sense of humor brightened our most dreary 
days and gained him many friends. A capable {unior officer, he will 
make a good addition to the fleet.

WILLIAM EDWARD LEWIS, JR. 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Bill, a Navy junior, originally hails fronn Massachusetts. Right 
from the start of plebe year he demonstrated to everyone his per- 
severance in making the most of his four years at Crabtown U. He 
took academics in his stride, and with his good study habits, his 
grades were continually way above average. Outside of academics, 
Bill was the next thing to a walking Blue Jacket's Manual, hie seemed 
to know as much about the Naval profession as the rest of the 
Brigade. After classes, Bill could be found working out in the fencing 
loft of MacDonough Hall. He became a strong addition to the 
Varsity Fencing Team for his last three years, although his time was 
somewhat cramped by the medical department. Thus, the Navy gains 
a competent officer who will go far in his field. 





TERRY KENT LINGLE 

Albuquerque, New Mexico 

Terry was appropriately dubbed the Eighth Company's Young 
Man with the Horn, because every minute he wasn't studying or 
working out on the blue trampoline, he could be found sitting in his 
chair blowing out the notes of some old favorite on his trumpet. This, 
his pride and joy, would sometimes hold more interest for him than a 
blind drag. According to Terry, however, this still remains to be seen. 
Music was his life in the extracurricular sense, as his four year par- 
ticipation in the D&B Corps, the NA-IO, and the Antiphonal Choir 
shows, and as long as there is still music at O-Club parties It's a 
sure bet that he'll be the life of every one of them. 




WALTER JAMES LIPPOLD 

Tv^enty-Nine Palms, California 

Although this star man won't readily admit It, he Is a native

all varsity and intramural aquatic sports. His pleasing personality and 
outstanding sense of humor have won him many lifelong friends. 
With these attributes, he will surely go far in his Navy career. 
Throughout his stay at Navy Tech his motto has been "Navy Air 
sounds mighty fair" and we expect great things of him in this de- 
partment. As our last P-rade becomes history, we wish him a safe 
voyage and again remind him to knock off bouncing.

ROBERT WAYNE LOWE 

Dayton, Kentucky 

With a year of college life at Purdue and a successful high 
school career under his belt Bob came to USNA as the first step in 
his Naval career. Since his brother Jim preceded Bob at the Acad- 
emy, life in Bancroft did not present many surprises to Bob. Not 
worrying about academics a great deal, Bob improved his culture by 
extracurricular reading while keeping in the upper fourth of the class. 
A constant competitor for the Seventh on the athletic field and the 
ability to make many good friends leaves us little doubt about Bob's 
continued success in a^l of his future endeavors. 



ROBERT JOHN MANSER 

Arlington, Virginia 

Bob has left an outstanding example for those we leave be- 
hind during his four years here on the banks of the Severn. His days 
as a Mid have been well spent. Bob's academic stars were matched 
by his activities in outside fields. Though not number one man on 
the varsity golf squad, he was a welcome addition to Navy's team. 
His voice was often heard on WRNV and by many of the under- 
classmen during their first year as Bob tried to incite in them more 
spirit for the Blue and Gold. Bob's qualities are sure to be of avail 
to him in his future with the new scientific Navy.

reputation for four years in both the professional and athletic aspects 
of academy life. hHis most spectacular event in athletic participation 
occurred in a race which he won but, as a result of which, he lost 
some liberty. Marty, being a member of the soccer, pistol, and 
brigade boxing teams, was known and liked by all. Even with his many

Gamblin' Jim was sent to Annapolis from the City of Roses,

and, above all, varsity victories. Jim won letters for proficiency in 
both football and squash, hlis academic potential closely matched 
his athletic, but sports and sleeping inhibited his reaching the top in 
standing. His abilities in Bull in or out of class made him tough to 
defeat in any argument. Navy Line will find Maxy a valuable officer, 
especially if they can utilize his many unique abilities. On a four 
year record, it Is hard to say whether Jim accumulated more girls, 
demerits or hours in the pad.

A Pensacola boy, it's little wonder that Mac's first love is 
Naval Aviation. Second class summer was more of a leave extension 
than a training period for him. His only regret was that he wasn't 
permitted to solo. Mac attended Marion Institute prior to entering 
USNA, consequently Crabtown weather was his only adjustment 
problem. Known as "Lightning" because of his Southern drawl, it was 
always a treat to hear Mac call chow as a plebe and recite as an 
upperclassman. Perhaps his greatest achievement was the invention 
of the McCaskillian Theory of Science — a masterpiece of scientific 
thinking designed to frustrate even the hardiest of profs.

From the firing of the gun, and over all of the hurdles, there

that Mac was one of Navy's finest trackmen from the undefeated 
plebe team through three years of varsity competition. Being active

PAUL ANDREW McLAUGHLIN

The best advice that we ever received at USNA was not to

years. The times have been few and far between when Paul has not 
had a smile and a cheerful word for his classmates. Mac came to 
USNA from Pennsylvania via Villanova University. At USNA Mac 
was noted for his abilities on the rifle and battalion track teams. His 
good looks have never hindered his success with the fairer sex and 
many a weekend he has been seen with a grade A drag. The sub

best recognized for his academic achievements. When Bill gave up 
football his youngster year and decided to become a Casanova almost 
overnight he changed from a 205-pound rowdy Into a 180-pound 
polished operator. During his second class summer Bill decided that 
Navy Air looked mighty fair. As Bill now begins his thirty years in

the system by instilling into the daily routine a little humor, thus 
enlightening the dull, bleak hours, not only for himself, but for those 
around him. Though he had no previous experience as a gymnast, 
"Free" soon became proficient on the blue trampoline. He could 
often be found in Smoke Hall, trying to shoot the eight ball in the 
side pocket. Musically talented, he sang a good bass In the Chapel 
Choir for four years.

HOWARD LAWRENCE SIPPLE. JR. 

Milford, Delaware 

Stemming from the state of Delaware and having spent many 
summers on the Atlantic shore, hloward naturally took to sailing at 
the Academy. Diligent studying and many hours on the bay paid off 
in the form of a yawl command, and then during second class year 
he qualified for command of the Academy's class A yacht FREEDOM. 
A hard worker during the week, "Sip" always looked forward to 
Saturday, which usually meant drag sailing and the hops. hHe has 
chosen the submarine fleet for his career and we are sure that it is 
receiving a fine officer and competent seaman. 



GID BERNARD SMITH 



Clifton, Texas 



"Smitty," as he was popularly known, came from the big state 
with big ideas. From the minute he arrived, he started working to- 
ward achievement of his goals. Although not a slash academically, 
"Smitty" used his background experience as a "fish" at Texas A&M 
to make him an outstanding plebe. This outstanding quality con- 
tinued through first class year as the result of a desire to go places 
in Ihe military. A good personality and outstanding personal pride 
characterize Gid. With a fencing background at Texas A&M, he 
immediately took an avid interest in this sport upon arrival at Navy 
and pursued it throughout his four years. Regardless of what his next 
duty station will be, it will certainly be only a stepping stone to great 
things for "Smitty." 





ROBERT ERNEST SMITH

concentrated on dragging. "Smitty" played the field and was often 
seen dragging a different girl every weekend, that is, when he wasn't 
out shopping for a new Navy sweater or jacket to send to his kid 
brother. The T2V jet flights during second class summer sold Bob on 
Navy Air and so he is off to Pensacola.

locale. Coming to the Academy via Citadel and, before that, a 
military high school, he found getting organized no problem, as far 
as the Academy system was concerned. Academics, however, were 
a different question. His hate of German and math are not soon to 
be equalled. This hate did not include athletics, however, since Skip 
managed to pull an oar in the first boat of Navy's crew for three 
years. If all goes as planned after graduation he will head for 
Quantico and, after that, to Pensacola to add some wings of gold

at Brown University. With him he brought a sense of humor and 
the desire to do a good job. Tom was always eager to find a new 
female acquaintance, and though not an Astaire on the dance floor, 
he managed, nevertheless, to make a fine accounting of himself. He 
lent himself to his studies very laboriously. Math being his best and 
Bull his nemesis. Athletically, he provided his company's 150-pound 
football team with a scrapper, and managed the plebe and varsity 
tennis teams. After a brief Introduction to submarines during second 
class summer, Tom decided that the life of the undersea warrior 
was for him.

CHARLES VERNON COLLINS 

Crown Point, Indiana 

From Crown Point, as Indiana's gift to the Naval Acadenny, 
Chuck immediately made a reputation for himself as a dependable 
hard worker and as a good man to have as a friend. The "Snake" 
was always a man to be wary of on the hardwood and the gridiron. 
In addition to his athletic abilities. Chuck was a good student, recog- 
nized by all as an excellent leader as is evidenced by the fact that 
his classmates elected him as their company representative. Because 
of all the desirable qualities he displays, Chuck is a sure bet for 
success. 




JEANLOUP ROBERT COMBEMALE 

New York City, New York 

This hard fighting, fast loving Frenchman is an excellent example 
of the good material the U. S. has attracted to its shores. With 
previous knowledge obtained from courses taken at Amherst College, 
and MIT, and as a member of the fleet, he has excelled in the 
majority of the courses offered at the Academy. Because of his 
knowledge of unlimited subjects and the vast amount of reading he 
has done, his abilities were recognized by the Splinter and Log. 
During the past three years he has been one of the men who has 
contributed much to their development and interesting articles. The 
fleet will be fortunate to receive such a talented man. 



JOSEPH DEMMin COLE 

Ak ron, Ohio 

From the day "Douge" landed at the Academy, throughout his 
four years here, he was rich In the virtues that make a good naval 
officer. Because he stood near the top of his class every year, it was 
a known fact that he had the only slide rule in existence that had 
all the right answers. Not meaning to slight his Intelligence, Joe is 
remembered most for his Mom's cookies and as a man who was 
always ready for any scheme that might be good for a laugh. Al- 
though his roommates did their best to bring him down to their level 

and he brought them up toward his.

CHARLES HUNTER CRIGLER 

Sfarkville, Mississippi 

"Crigler, come here!" Still echoing through the halls till gradu- 
ation day was this never-to-be-forgotten distress call for Mississippi's 
most excitable representative at Navy. Charlie or Chuck, as you 
prefer, was most efficient when disturbed, for then he could spill out 
more deliciously southern drawled words than any one of us could 
absorb, even enough to discourage any would-be verbal antagonist. 
Charlie put this talent to good use as well, and got his greatest thrill 
from cheerleading at football games and pep rallies both plebe and 
youngster years. Although Chuck would make a very fine politician, 
we know that the Navy won't be disappointed with an equally efficient 
officer. 






WALTER SALVADOR CUMELLA 

Alexandria, Louisiana 

'Wally hails from Alexandria, Louisiana, and like all southern 
gentlemen, he'll swear over a plate of grits and black-eyed peas that 
there's nothing better than southern cooking, southern belles, and 
New Orleans. Wally's most obvious asset was his booming baritone 
voice, as it played a major role in his activities, in everything from 
barking commands on Worden Field to hitting high "C" with the 
Catholic Choir. Wally Indulged in a host of extracurricular activities 
and, each year, tried to squeeze a few more into an already crowded 
schedule. But of all these activities, Wally's first love was sailing the 
'Royono, " and his proudest accomplishment was the attainment of 
his command. Wally intends to stake his future in subs, but whatever 
he does, you can be certain it will be a job well done. 





DONNIE LEN DARROW 

Lebanon, Missouri 

The "man from Missouri, " Don has for four years twisted the 
"show me " motto into showing us just how much one man can ac- 
complish during his stay here. Never very talkative, when he said 
something it was listened to and acted upon. The people who will 
miss him most are the track coaches and fans. For four years as 
Navy's outstanding quarter-miler and mainstay of the mile-relay team, 
Don has brought in one victory after another for the Blue and Gold. 
As he goes into the Marines, we hope they can realize how much of 
a man they are getting.

WILLIAM GEORGE DAVIDSON III 

Fontainbleau, France 

Bill came to Annapolis soon after graduating from Culver Mili- 
tary Academy in Indiana. With this background, plebe year wasn't 
too great a shock to him, and his easygoing nature carried him over 
most obstacles, not only in the first, but all four years at Navy. Easy- 
going, hov/ever, could not describe his attitude in the stroke seat of 
his lightweight crew shell. Bill will long be remembered for the cheer- 
ful greeting he had for everyone and for his earnest desire to make 
everyone's problems his own. 






RICHARD BARRY DAVIS 

Lakeport, New Hampshire 

Out of the beautiful lake region of New hHampshire came 
Lakeport's favorite son, Dick Davis. Although quiet and reserved, 
Dick never managed to let Navy Tech baffle him completely. From 
among his many and varied attributes he charmed us with tuba play- 
ing and amazed us with his wings of Mercury on the track. Whenever 
the weekend rolled around he could usually be found with a good- 
looking girl on his arm. A good sense of humor and a genuine loyalty 
to USNA made it possible for Dick to enjoy his four-year stay. 



RICHARD EATON DODSON 

Melbourne Beach, Florida 

After a short tour of duty at the University of Maryland, Dick 
decided to come to the Trade School on the Severn, hie immediately 
displayed his leadership qualities by becoming the company represent- 
ative of his plebe class, hlowever, his leadership capabilities were one 
among many of his Academy successes. Dick was a firm supporter of 
a sturdy athletic program, and his desire and will to win were a great 
asset to many a company team. He professed to be a master at tennis, 
as he proved on many of the battalion championship teams, but he also 
excelled in squash and the never-to-be-forgotten Turkey Bowl games. 
Extracurricular activities constitute a major portion of a mid's daily 
routine and the "Dodsone" was no exception to this rule, hlop Com- 
mittees, Reception Committee, and WRNV were only a small portion 
of his many achievements. After a successful career at USNA he 
only hopes to follow in the footsteps of his father, who retired after 
a rewarding and distinguished career.

Wichita, Kansas 

With camera in hand, George came to the gay, carefree 
campus on the Severn via Bullis Prep. Plebe year was a high hurdle 
to George, whose ready laugh kept him In ten sets of sweat gear. 
Despite this athletic prowess, he managed to lead the Swimming Sub 
Squad through nine months of near drowning. Studies came easy to 
George, which gave him plenty of time for his favorite endeavor, the 
sack. "Just resting my eyes," he would reply. After building Hi-Fi 
sets, making radio controlled models, and taking his expert photo- 
graphs, George still found time to apply his broad knowledge to 
solving everyone's problems. HHis winning smile and readiness to lend 
a hand will make George a big success in all he does. 



ROBERT ANTHONY DROPP 

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

Tony, or Bob, as most of us know him, may not have, aca- 
demically, left his mark at the Naval Academy, but he did leave it 
socially. Being a firm believer in the Navy adage, "A girl in every 
port," Bob took distinct advantage of cruise, plebe tea hops, and 
was never seen alone on weekends. Also a tenacious worker In every- 
thing he set out to do, Bob was outstanding in company athletics 
and always tried to better himself academically. Yet he was never 
too busy to help others. This unique combination will be an asset to 
the fleet. 




JAMES INSLEY DUDLEY. JR. 

Hagerstown, Maryland 

Jim came to the Academy well prepared to cope with any- 
thing it could hand him. Two years at hHagerstown Junior College 
made the academics seem easy, while a calm and mature personality 
enabled him to weather plebe year and all the other little unpleasant- 
ries associated with the conversion to a military way of life. Most of 
Jim's spare time was filled by his work on the Naval Academy Chris- 
tian Association Council, an organization in which he took an active 
part. After graduation Jim plans a career In Naval Aviation, the 
fulfillment of a long standing ambition.

Edward became one of the most respected and skilled members of 
our class. Although not a varsity letter winner, he could always be 
found on the basketball court or the gridiron. Extremely versatile, 
Edward was above average in both academics and aptitude, and be-

Tulsa, Oklahoma 

From the hills of Korea, via the shores of the Susquehanna, 
came the "Rotund One." Although Bernie was known for his many 
undertakings, he probably was most famous for his successful battle

don't have to be good in math to be a good marine." Always ready 
for a bridge or basketball game, his motto was, "Never do today 
what you can put off until the study period before class tomorrow." 
In spite of the rough road, Bernie was significantly active in company 
sports, and because of his competitive spirit, there is no doubt that 
he will be a credit to his chosen service.

Weatherly, Pennsylvania 

This agreeable Pennsylvanian, having attended Penn State 
University for a year, came to the Naval Academy with one purpose

JEROME JOHN FEE 

Norfolk, Virginia 

The "Little Admiral" from Bremerton, Washington, came to 
Navy straight from a number one standing at Norfolk Academy High 
School. It was immediately evident that academics would prove no 
problem to Jerry, and by the end of his first year he easily made 
the Superintendent's List. His unlimited knowledge of Navy facts and 
baseball proved a sharp foil to the rapid fire questions of the upper- 
class during plebe year. In addition to absorbing the necessary 
knowledge for his chosen career, he acquired a varied number of 
nicknames among which the most prominent were "Captain Jack" 
and "Freddy Fee." Captain Jack was the serious aspirant to a naval 
career. Freddy Fee was the popular, hard-charging regular on the 
company soccer, softball, and steeplechase teams. Among his extra- 
curricular activities was his work with the Lucky Bag as the company 
representative.

Though quiet and mild mannered in appearance. Bill proved 
to be an engaging conversationalist and true friend. A master at 
repartee. Bill was always ready with a retort or some sound advice, 
whichever was more appropriate. Academics were no problem to the 
man from Rhode Island, and many a nigh* was spent in a good 
healthy bull session rather than at the books. Holding any physical 
effort in utter disdain. Bill nevertheless managed to turn in a credit-

consternation of his associates. Now, after a short tenure on the 
banks of the Severn, Bill will turn his talents toward a naval career. 



DON JOAQUIN FROST 

Wilmington, North Carolina 

"Frosty," as he was affectionately called by all, was one of the

qualities of a southern gentleman from Wilmington, North Carolina, 
but he also had the distinction of being the smallest man in our class. 
He may have been small but only in stature. Entering the Academy 
at the age of twenty one, Don had one and a half years at the 
University of Oklahoma behind him. This was a great aid in his four 
strenuous years of study. Even so he was still able to devote time to 
crew, battalion wrestling, softball and four years as company Log 
representative.

While at USNA Dave v^^as very active in company and battalion 
sports, especially football. On both battalion and company heavies, 
he was first string quarterback. Almost all of Dave's spare time was 
spent at the bridge table, as he was an accomplished player and a 
sincere devotee of Charles Goren. Dave was pretty sure that he 
wanted to fly from the first, and the month he spent at Jax and 
Pensacola during second class summer made his decision to go Navy

GEORGE ALPHONSUS GOULD III

From St. John's Military Academy came George, an Army

ways had a good sense of humor. George's special field of interest 
was world affairs, and his favorite subiect — Bull. He participated in 
intramural swimming during quite a few sports seasons. George's 
vision was slightly impaired during his four years of studying, so he 
has chosen the Supply Corps. His fellow officers will definitely ap-

WILLIAM CLARK HAMILTON 

Baton Rouge, Louisiana 

After spending most of his life in the bottom half of the 
United States, Bill arrived at Navy fresh from high school to face the 
rigors of preparing for a Naval career. He confined his athletic 
abilities to intramural football, and when he wasn't pursuing this ac- 
tivity he could be found in his rack figuring the daily tally of Hamilton 
vs Navy. Bill always preferred the southern type girl to the northern 
ones, and one of them will undoubtedly end his single days. Bill's 
warm personality and determination helped him to stand high aca- 
demically and won him many friends. His interest in Navy Air will 
surely give Bill a worthwhile career.

Rog was a big man in more ways than one and could always be seen 
on fields of competition where body contact was the important role. 
If he leads his destroyer like he played soccer and fieldball, he'll never

squads besides being a member of the plebe lacrosse squad. George 
has developed the fine trait of laughing at his own mistakes; this 
keeps him in constant laughter. George's determination, consideration 
for others and positive outlook on life will make him a success as a 
career officer. 





EDMUND LAWRENCE MANGAN 

Teaneck, New Jersey 

Ed came to USNA fresh out of high school, but with a worldly 
wisdom far beyond his years. One of the youngest and most well 
known men in his class, he was quick to point out that it is experience 
and not years which counts, hlis sly wink and accompanying line have 
proved him a handy man with the women. Ed would have ranked 
number one if marks attained were matched against man study hours, 
but he was always too busy helping someone out of a jam or getting 
himself into one. An early love for speed and an ever-sharpening eye 
now threatens to loose this high-stepping young man on the unsus- 
pecting wild blue yonder in a Navy jet. 






GEORGE GERALD MARBURGER, JR. 

Delaware, Ohio 

After four years of success at Delaware Willis High School, 
the favorite son of Delaware, Ohio, was sent on to bigger and better 
things at the Naval Academy. George displayed his ability and 
teamwork in everything he undertook. After lettering in four sports 
in high school, George continued his athletic prowess via his keen 
competitive spirit while participating in the sporting program. As a 
member of the Naval Academy Choir George also showed his ver- 
satility and all-around ability. Surely the naval service has gained a 
fine officer and all-around gentleman.

A wife can be a great help to any man's profession, and to 
this Academy wife such credit can be given. Although Dave was one 
of those few plebes who seemed to be naturally squared-away, he was 
always on hand to help his classmates over the rigors of piebe year. 
Not one to be found Idle, Dave spent his hours away from the boots 
on the athletic fields where his specialties were varsity soccer and 
lacrosse. Suave Dave, a possessor of a rare pair of Internationally 
famous big, brown eyes, always managed to find time to share them 
with the many young lasses who found those eyes irresistible. Even 
while at the University of Wisconsin for one year, aeronautical en- 
gineering caught his fancy, and this Interest grew during his four 
years at the Academy. In the near future Dave will probably be seen 
overhead In one of the latest developments of the aircraft field. 



Ron came to USNAY by way of NAPS and the fleet as a 
distinguished chow hound and all-around swell guy. He had no trouble 
getting enough to eat plebe year as he was on the plebe crew train- 
ing table. He was a steadfast player on the battalion and company 
heavyweight football teams. In the spring he played a rugged de- 
fensive game on the varsity lacrosse team. He brought with him to 
the Academy a sincere desire to make the submarine service his 
career, and he never changed his mind. With his quiet manner and 
his knack for getting a job done, he Is certain to be a success In his 
future career.

ROBERT SEIDEL MECK 

Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania 

"Moke " has a perpetual sun-tan which he claims Is due to the 
coal dust of Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania, his hometown. This tan 
combined with sharp eyes and a quick smile became well known 
throughout the Brigade during the past four years. Coming to the 
Academy from Wyoming Seminary, "Moke " excelled In Intramural 
football, tennis, and basketball. He attributes his muscles to weight- 
lifting, and of course the lucky Marine Corps has another rugged 
pilot on the way. His likes Include women, drinks, and food In that

Marty came to USNAY from Napervllle, Illinois, and brought 
with him a pretty extensive musical background. While here, either 
vocalizing or instrumentalizing, it was in Mart's line and he was in it. 
With him. Navy Line was mighty fine, until Second Class Summer, at 
which time the air looked fair. In academics, the sciences were his 
meat, hie could make his slide rule talk and was often heard talking 
back to it. Swimming was Mart's favorite sport; and between that, 
music, and a conscientious attitude toward the books, the fairer sex 
often founfj room to make its Impression. 



MICHAEL HERBERT MERRILL 

Boulder City, Nevada 

Aptly described as being in love with love, Mike spent his spare

Charming, intelligent and attractive, Mike had everyone constantly 
guessing as to the identity of his latest "true love." Energetic and 
enthusiastic, Mike could always be counted on to bring a little life

Mike's ambition has always been to be the best jet-jockey of the 
U. S. Navy, and undoubtedly he will soon be just that. 






DENNIS ANTHONY MOORE 

Littleton, Colorado 

Denny, famed throughout the 18th Company for his athletic 
endeavors, brought with him to the Academy a sense of humor as 
big as his neck. A four year veteran of battalion lacrosse, he soon 
became almost as co-ordinated as any man. hie did, however, excel 
at studies and provided many a helpful El for those with lesser 
mental powers. Of Denny's many hobbies, bridge, although the most 
confusing to him, is his favorite and with the years should come en- 
lightenment. A career even more successful than his Academy days 
awaits Denny, and great accomplishment should be his.

DAVID EUGENE MULLEN 

Spokane, Washington 

Moon," as he is more commonly called, came to us that fate- 
ful day In June to join the "pampered pets of Uncle Sam," a naive 
and well adjusted college student. Navy soon made its mark, and he 
became entwined within the arms of Mother Bancroft. hHe quickly 
established himself a man of few well-chosen words, preferring to 
quietly take action himself. At the end of youngster year the 13th 
Company found Moon pushing his cruise box to the 18th Company 
after falling victim to a third class give-away lottery. His spirit re- 
mained undaunted as he continued to leave behind a trail of con- 
quered academics and broken-hearted girls. It's with a feeling of 
lost comradeship yet pride that we watch Dave progress on to the 
fleet and greater honor. 





GEORGE CLARENCE MYERS. JR. 

Laurel, Mississippi 

"P. J." arrived at USNA full of vim, vigor, and vitality and 
now has evidence of it in the form of many friends, memories, and 
4.0's. George's exceptional ability and determination have paid off 
academically, and his warm personality has won him many friends. 
His principal athletic Interest was swimming. Although girls from 
Philadelphia to Pensacola have fallen for George his heart belongs to 
a Southern Belle from Laurel who Is a good bet to finish his bachelor 
days quickly. We'll miss this guy who has many times pulled us from 
the jaws of the skinny department, but the Navy has gained an 
officer of truly outstanding proportions. 




MURRAY CAMERON NIXON 

Santa Cruz, California 

Back East from the Golden West came San Francisco's answer 
to "Smiling Jack." Always ready with a smile and an Infectious laugh, 
he pulled many of us through a cheerless day. From the very first 
he was active In many different organizations. In addition to keeping 
up with his marks, he found time for the golf team and his first love, 
varsity sailing, and was one of the most active of the Highland 
Light's Bermuda race crew. Murray is pointing for Navy Line and 
submarines, and If he Is true to form, should be as great a success

Petaluma, California 

"Ole" is another one of those lucky lads from the land of 
surf and sun, California. He came to the Academy via Petaluma 
High, a year of wandering, and Columbian Prep. His calling to the 
sea was mainly influenced by his father who has spent his entire life 
in the Coast Guard. The studies were the main barrier for "Ole" 
throughout his four years on the Severn with a close call in youngster 
year math accounting for some grey hair. This trouble with engineer- 
ing sciences stems mainly from the fact that his aptitudes ran along 
the liberal arts line. "Ole" plans to make his way to Pensacola for 
flight training, and then on to the fleet. With his great sense of 
humor, personality, and driving ambition, "Ole" will be a valuable 
asset to the Naval Service. 






ROBERT EDWARD OSMON 



ZIon,

After a rigorous year of frat life at Lake Forest Bob decided 
that the strain of partying was too much. He came to Navy to 
enhance his former fame as the "Pride of ZIon." Moose organized 
the boys from Illinois and soon became known as the muscleman of 
the syndicate. He proved his reputation when he led the Class of 
'60 on to victory as Mr. Inside In the never-to-be-forgotten Turkey 
Bowl Game. Football was his sport, but soccer and track proved no 
strain. The women, however, did prove a problem — they just would 
not let him alone. He spent many a study hour discussing this di- 
lemma. Although a hero with the women, Bob was not one for 
publicity. But we all know that the William and Mary game of '58 
proved a real "Dllly." 



HENRY WILLIAM PAPA 

Warwick, Rhode Island 

"Pop," well known throughout the Brigade for his pixie-like 
grin, came well prepared to Navy after two riotous years at the 
University of Rhode Island. During his tour at the Academy, besides 
establishing himself as a familiar character on the campus, he gained 
a well-deserved reputation for his drive and determination. These es-

long as he can remember being a Marine junior. During his USNAY 
sojourn, Bob's pet activity always was soccer; plebe and three varsity 
years found him with bruised feet, banged up shins, and a parcel of 
letters as his reward. Academically, he has never been hard pressed, 
although not one to hit books when there was something more worth-

he never sweated them too much — he just had fun. Ted was always 
crazy about aviation, in fact, after Second Class Summer, he got a

West Point's loss was the Academy's gain when "Petey Swed-

stars each year. hHis ability, however, was not confined to the class- 
room. Pete was a standout on the varsity and battalion wrestling 
teams, earning the nickname of "the Colorado Crippler" from his 
coach for his aggressiveness. This fighting spirit was exemplified in 
his desire to acquire new skills such as learning the complexities of 
electronic circuits, playing bridge, tennis and swimming and his 
ability to excel in each department. Naval Aviation couldn't have 
had a better man from the Academy than this beaming Swede from 
Colorado.

Prior to his midshipman days, Phil spent one year at Texas 
A&M. hHis first year there proved to be an Invaluable Indoctrination 
period for the rigors of Academy life. Phil's speed on the cinder oval 
made him an excellent quarter miler. The track team can be proud of 
his aggressive, winning spirit, hlls speed with the women was no less 
effective. In his case, the old adage — a girl in every port — did not 
apply. Phil preferred to have at least two. hHis future "jungle bunny"

in the Engineering and Boat Clubs and also through five years of 
sailing here at Navy. Jack took a semester break at George Wash-

virtues of southern belles, bird dogs, and Creole gumbo. It was 
difficult to console himself to the idea of going to school this far 
north. During the week he could usually be found aboard one of the 
ocean sailboats or deep in a volume of William Faulkner. His week- 
ends were generally spent dragging or playing tennis, seldom behind 
books; nevertheless, he managed to stand high in all his academics. 
His idea of a good summer cruise consisted of racing a sailboat to 
Bermuda, although straight Navy Line is still his choice. 




FRANCIS RICHARD RAPASKY

end of youngster, second, and first class years he occupied the same 
position on the varsity. Mick was also talented in other fields, and,

De nms came to the Academy following In his father's footsteps. 
He hails from Oroville, California, and stopped off at Severn Prep 
School for a year on his way here. When he was not hiding behind 
his camera, reading about Arturo Toscanlnl, or sleeping. Den could 
be found studying. It was always amazing how he found ways to keep 
the young ladies chasing him so ardently. His six foot five frame 
made him a high priority selection for the 150-pound crew team 
during his plebe year. After that sailing took his fancy, and he 
could be found churning up the Severn during the afternoons. A 
confirmed Navy Air man, Dennis plans to go all the way.

Bob has followed in the footsteps of his father, first the Naval 
Academy, and then Navy line. He loves to fly and his major Interests 
lie in jets. Bullls Prep School prepared him for his midshipman life. 
He was active in company and battalion sports and was a cheer- 
leader his last two years. Bob had a smile for everyone and was 
liked by all who knew him. Academics were his major problem, but 
he managed to pull through when he needed that 2.5. Bob's cheer- 
fulness and ardent desire to get along with people will certainly 
Insure his success as an officer. 



ROBERT GERALD TAYLOR 

Baltinnore, Maryland 

Coming to us from Baltimore, Jerry was well acquainted 
with Maryland weather, and seven months as what he vaguely 
termed an engineer at the Glenn L. Martin's Company supplied 
him with enough steam savvy to stand sixteen for mechanical draw- 
ing. Soon after arrival he was introduced to the intricacies of squash 
and for four years he was the mainstay of both the battalion and com- 
pany squash teams. Academics, girls, and life In general — he met them 
all with the same suave smile and cool Indifference that makes him a 
welcome addition to the service.

JOSEPH RICKS TENNEY 

New Orleans, Louisiana 

Joe came to Navy to follow his father's footsteps, however, 
only to the extent of graduation. hHIs service preference leans more 
toward submarines than to the Supply Corps. After some difficulty 
with academics during youngster year, Joe came back and settled 
down to face the books with a determination that wa's to be admired. 
Aside from the studies, he was a success in everything he pursued. 
This could be seen by his outstanding performances for the battalion 
tennis team, and the company 150 pound football team. Joe is 
assured of a successful career in the service. hHis friendly approach, 
quick judgment, and winning spirit cannot but help him to accomplish 
this goal. 





WILLIAM EDWARD THOMAS 

Hollsopple, Pennsylvania 

Tank," as he was dubbed by a segundo in the hectic days 
of 1956-57, answers well to the name in both looks and deeds. Two 
hundred pounds and six feet tall, he was a big asset to Coach 
hHardin's reputation, as well as to his own company in a variety of 
ways. Besides athletics Tank did well in his studies, and for the past 
four years has been a member of the Foreign Languages Club. Born, 
raised, and educated at Hollsopple, Pennsylvania, Tank came to the 
Academy after a year at Bullis Prep. With not even a slight incerti- 
tude, we can see here a man who would undoubtedly be among 
those holding the key to the nation's security m the air. 




ALTON KENNETH THOMPSON 

Dallas, Texas 

From April 4, 1938, to June 4, I960, Alton Kenneth Thompson 
has been outstanding in each and every endeavor he has undertaken. 
"Butch," as he is called, is a quiet, good-natured, and amiable man, 
who has shown excellent qualities as a leader, in athletics as well 
as in military aptitude. During his four years at the Academy, Butch 
has stood near the top of his class, but also found time for active 
participation in varsity and Intramural sports as well as being in 
extracurricular activities. In addition to his academic and athletic 
abilities. Butch has a way with the women, as has been witnessed by 
all at USNA. Butch has a knack of getting along with everyone, and 
this, along with his ability to conquer almost any obstacle, will 
assure him of success.

"Willie" came to the Academy via Coronado High School 
and Bayden Prep School of San Diego. As one of the starting eleven 
on the Coronado squad for three years, he gained much experience 
which helped him win a starting berth on the Plebe team. Willie" 
went on to play Varsity ball, but the struggle with the "Skinny" 
Department became too much, and he was forced to give up his 
favorite sport and spend the extra time with the books. When not 
studying, most of the weekends found him dragging. Although a 
hard worker, "Willie" always leaves plenty of time for fun. As a 
result, he'll certainly be a welcome addition wherever he goes.

Wanted for draft-dodging In Argentina where he was born, 
"Gaucho" claims Massachusetts as home. Athletically, Mike found

The Catholic Choir and the Spanish Club took up his leisure moments. 
As a detective, "Dick" Treacy put up quite a fight In the case 
of the Executive Department's Form 2 as evidenced by the many 
cold winter mornings he spent paying his debt to society at extra

him a welcome addition to Navy Air where he plans to enter the 
ASW field.

Bill entered the Academy after graduating from high school

his time studying but he made very good use of his spare time by 
extensive extra reading and writing. He even took an extra course 
by attending extra instruction in French during his Second Class year. 
Upon entering the Fleet, his extra reading and his constant thirst 
for knowledge will prove an asset.

played company squash and other intramural sports, but his favorite 
sport was the horizontal position on the blue trampoline. Here he 
was an accomplished artist due to many hours of grueling practice. 
When not engaged In this activity, he could be found playing hearts, 
pinochle, or chess. Joe was definitely not a woman hater, but, believing 
that variety is the spice of life, he managed to keep his crest intact. 
The "Chuke, ' as he was known to his friends, was the life of the

being the hit he made at Pat O'Brien's In New Orleans.

championship company cross-country, basketball, and softball teams. 
He spent his last two years playing company soccer and became 
known as "Mr. Outside" after the Turkey Bowl game when he 
racked up many yards on end sweeps. When not participating In 
sports, Frank could usually be found writing letters. After he finished 
his dally letter-writing period, he could be talked into a quick game

good excuse for sleeping most of the time even though maintaining 
a 3.1 average. He was forever receiving letters from out Colorado

Because of his military bearing, Granny" was dubbed In high

and left one of the most scenic localities in the United States to 
come to the Naval Academy. He wanted to become a naval officer. 
With this in mind, becoming accustomed to life at Canoe U.

Tijuana boda and headed for the Academy where he was to become 
one of the outstanding personalities of his class, hlis unceasing store 
of wit, sense of fair play and varied sports Interests made Jim well 
liked by all of his acquaintances. H\s greatest accomplishment in 
academics was the completion of plebe "steam." His complete dis- 
like for the Executive Department was offset by his love for liberty, 
leave and Navy Air. The opposite sex was Jim's greatest problem, 
but his name was never the center of a bricking party. His ability

fulfill his ambition — that of becoming a capable Naval officer.

an injury Don was unable to play football, but his love of the sport 
has led him to be manager of the varsity team since his arrival 
at the Academy. Besides football, Don is highly interested In swim- 
ming, baseball, and boxing. During his plebe year he developed into 
a better than average boxer. With such determination and persever- 
ance Don should make a fine line officer. 




WILLIAM DIMSDALE

Bill has been active In many phases of Academy life during 
the past four years. Among his diversions were the Drum and Bugle 
Corps, the juice gang, and the Model Club, with, of course, tea 
fights on the weekends. Studies seemed to be of secondary importance 
to Bill with so many time consuming activities, but he still maintained 
a high average, htalling originally from Highland Park, Illinois, he 
had a year of junior college life in Kansas City, Missouri, prior to 
entering USNAY. He has a very great interest In the Navy, as is 
exemplified by the fact that he spent four years In the Sea Scouts 
where he attained the rank of Lt. (jg). Bill has all Intentions of 
pursuing a naval career, with a preference for subs.

PETER BROWN DOLAN 

Brooklyn, New York 

"P. B.," "Sparrow," or just "Pete," came to USNA the hard 
way — straight from high school. With him Pete brought a little bit 
of Ireland, a lot of Brooklyn and a penchant for making new friends. 
"P. B.'s" musical talent was utilized by the Drum and Bugle Corps, 
while the Reception Committee capitalized on his congenial nature. 
When engineering subjects puzzled "P. B.," he would persevere and 
pass, in some instances achieving proverbial "maximum efficiency" 
with a 2.50. Pete's casual nature and quick Irish wit will contribute 
to any submarine wardroom when he joins the wearers of the dolphins. 







LAWRENCE EUGENE DUNNE 

Wllmette, Illinois 

Coming from the land of Lincoln, Larry was the perfect ex- 
ample of a truly "Gung-ho" career officer. The Naval Academy's 
loss is to be gained by the silent service. Hlis vast knowledge of subs 
was quite often the downfall of many plebes. Larry, being a fond 
admirer of all sports, was the only member of the class to salute 
an officer with a lacrosse stick. HIaving been one of the youngest 
members of the company, Larry was often called "the answer to 
a teenage prayer," maybe because his youthful innocence made 
him a favorite with the opposite sex. hlis many questions concerning 
the birds and the bees will long be missed.

CHARLES EVERETT McHALE 

Frankfort, Indiana 

A short tour at the Naval Training Center, Balnbrldge, Mary- 
land, started Charlie's naval career, and the Naval Academy never 
managed to put an undue strain on this true Hoosler. Though always 
willing, and sometimes called upon, to lend a helping hand, Charlie 
found quite a bit of time for his favorite pastime — sleeping. His 
winning ways with the young ladles were thoroughly tested and 
found to be of the highest quality, yet the ladles were never able 
to get the best of him. Any outfit is going to welcome the easy 
going, but professional, characteristics of this fine young gentleman. 







JAMES BRADLEY McKINNEY 

Arlington, Virginia 

Mac was a dealer from the word go" — the kind of person 
who could turn routine into riot. He was a subtle and successful 
Instigator and had a genius for improvisation. Jim could talk anyone 
Into almost anything, and, unfortunately, had ample opportunity 
to use this unique ability with the Academic Board. When winter 
came, "the Ant " would have a lean and hungry look, and, needless 
to say, was dangerous. Evidence of this is his impressive wrestling 
record. During his four years here, he has already become a legend. 
Jim is Indispensable to high morale and will be a definite asset to 
any wardroom in the Navy.

with his hobby of sketching. The I960 Ring and Crest Committee 
and the Log staff were Bob's extracurricular activities while at Navy. 
Many afternoons saw him in sweaty competition with fellow mid- 
shipmen in Third Battalion wrestling and spring lacrosse. The many 
friends Bob has made are a direct indication of his personality.

DAVID PAUL STROMBERG 

Cincinnati, Ohio 

From the murky dens of iniquity of Ohio State University 
to the salty stronghold of USNA came young Dave to follow the 
wanderlust of the sea. Since he has been at the Academy, he ho5 
not only gained a creditable academic record, but has become 
an expert sailor as well. Many afternoons and weekends spent on 
the Freedom and Royona have seen to that. Other extracurricul-jr 
activities have found Dave mostly in the field of music, where for 
four years he wielded one of the meanest baritone saxes around. 
The local femmes have been quite unsuccessful in snaring this younq 
man since his interests seemed to lie in other directions. Navy Air 
and Subs are both high on Dave's preference of duty list, but 
whichever he chooses, he is sure to do an outstanding job. 



JAMES EDWARD SWEENEY 

University Hills, Maryland 

Jim was born in Washington and, unlike most of his class-

Before arriving at USNA Jim spent some time in the Marine Corps 
and went to NAPS. During his academy days he never deviated from 
his mission to beat the system, but he had little success. With Jim's 
graduation the third battalion will lose one of its best radiator squad 
men. hie would like to enter the Air Force. 





JOHN HERBERT TAIT

tendant, janitor, and ditchdigger being just a few. In preparation 
for the Academy, John spent a year at Drew School in San Fran- 
cisco. Sportswise at Navy he's seen action as a battalion boxer. hHe 
has played company sports as well, and was an ocean sailor for 
one year. In what spare time remained, John did service on the Log 
features staff, the First Class Car Committee, and as Trident Repre-

TURNER WORTHINGTON TAYLOR 

Richmond, Virginia 

When "T" entered the Academy, he was fhesh out of high 
school, but he wasn't exactly wet behind the ears. He was what we 
men of the South would call a ladies-man, and he never missed 
a chance to drag, f^e had a wicked left eyebrow. When it came 
to academics, he always managed to keep a Superintendent's List 
average, but was a bit too fun-loving to quite make good grease. 
If a classmate ever needed a hand, old "T" was ready. He was 
very active on the Splinter staff, starting as Feature Editor and 
working his way to the top. He could make a joke out of any 
situation, including manual labor. And no matter how bad the 
Executive Department treated him, he always managed to sleep 
it off in one afternoon. 



CHARLES LANCE TERRY 

La Porte, Texas 

Lance hails from La Porte, Texas, and came to the Naval 
Academy straight from high school. He had little trouble adapting

Lange also proved his ability as a scholar by maintaining a starring 
average for his four years at the Academy. Athletic-wise, Lance 
was also a company standout. He participated in company soccer, 
football, and softball and was a consistent morale builder in the 
company. Lance plans a career as a Naval Line officer, and we 
of the Tenth Company know he will be as outstanding in the fleet

LEWIS HERMAN THAMES 

Alamogordo, New Mexico 

The South lost a good note when this tall, shy "desert

big ships. After duty aboard the USS Philippine Sea, Lew went 
through NAPS and arrived at the Academy just In time to trade 
his RD-2 rating for that of Midshipman. Both the J.V. soccer and 
lacrosse teams saw his smiling face for four years and the Brigade 
Hop and Ring Dance Committees received his earnest support. The 
shy guy denied any alliance with the weaker sex, but those frequent, 
perfumed letters from various parts of the world left much room 
for doubt. For his future. Lew wanted only two things — plenty of 
sea duty and liberty.

ROBERT EUGENE TUCKER, JR. 

Norfolk, Virginia 

A refugee from an Army family, Gene received a number 
of salty expressions at NAPS before making his debut at USNA. 
Never a man to sweat over any type of difficulty, Gene floated 
happily over the rough spots. Academics were not his par excellence, 
but have never proved too great an obstacle. When not in the rack 
he could be found making use of his musical talent in the D&B 
Corps. Although subjects of current academic demand hardly ever 
met with his approval, he excelled in professional subjects, hlis desire 
for comfort was easily met by a warm radiator, slippers, and issues 
of the Saturday Evening Post. Always an individualist. Gene will 
undoubtedly have a good career in Navy Air.

seems to have carried over, for Bob has been an enthusiastic member 
of the American Rocket Society for three years. Fencing has been 
his favorite sport — five years of training and competition having 
made him an expert. For nearly all of hii midshipman career Bob

also excelled on the athletic field, playing two years of J.V. lacrosse 
and one year of varsity. Vinje was well known in the company for 
giving needed help to his classmates on academic subjects. In fact,

always be counted on for support In all of the company sports. The 
U. S. Navy ranks tops in Don's preference for his branch of service. 
However, due to his eyes, Don could possibly end up In the Supply

Houston provided USNA with Its usual big Texan when 
Alan was chosen by congressional appointment to attend the school

he was born in Florida and received some degree of schooling at 
Florida University. Along with the rigors of plebe year Alan had the 
extra burden of making the Form W's for all 4/c formations. He 
wasn't without compensation however. Whenever shots were the order 
of the day, Buf was always at the head of the line. After a hectic 
plebe year Alan settled down to devoting most of his spare time 
to dragging and rowing. His tremendous drive aided the crew

Out of the ranks of the enlisted men staggered the lanky 
body of D. J. Affourtit to his four years at Navy. His offense was

his complaints about the system, his time was well divided among 
studies, thoughts of freedom and thoughts of girls. The studies paid 
him off with his high marks, and he could always tell you the exact

was an excellent swimmer and led his teammates to many victories 
while at the Academy. After graduation Pablo will return to Panama 
where he intends to marry and take graduate work in Maritime Law. 
After which he will be connected with Panama's merchant fleet which 
is among the largest of the world. We at the Academy only hope

JAMES TEIGEN EILERTSEN 

Huntington Woods, Michigan 

Jim had never seen salt water until he came to Navy . . . and 
judging from Youngster cruise, he wishes he had never seen it. 
Coming straight out of Royal Oak High School, he came to the 
Academy with a thirst for knowledge . . . working hard at every 
task which confronted him. Afternoons found him out for varsity 
sports, either on the cross-country course, on the basketball court, 
or running track but his evenings were usually spent playing bridge 
or writing letters. Every leave he headed straight for Detroit and 
those big parties up north. With his open heart and his ready smile, 
for him we confidently predict a career of purpose and accomplish-

Fergy entered USNA after high school to become a Mark 60, 
Mod 2.50 midshipman. His frequent clashes with the academic de-

seemed to rest on his shoulders. Summer cruises were the highlights 
of his stay here. During Youngster Cruise he decided Navy Line was 
not his first choice and that Brazil would be nice to return to. Second 
Class Summer Increased his preference for the Marine Corps and 
Navy Air. Becoming "foot loose and fancy free" during youngster 
year, he soon began to find time to drag frequently. An amiable

Phoenix, Arizona 

hiaving spent most of his life In the Black hiills of South 
Dakota, Tom was forced to give up his sheepskin coat when his 
family moved to Phoenix, Arizona, at the beginning of his second 
class year. His biggest problem, certainly not academics, was finding 
room in his locker for another 8 by 1 of his OAO. Tom didn't 
spend all of his time thinking about his sweet miss, just most of it; 
he unofficially holds the Brigade title for the most letters from a 
single gal. His ability to make quick and intelligent decisions will 
assure him of a successful career.

as one of the best fielders in college baseball. Varsity cross-country 
was his other sport, and in his spare time Ark sang in the Antiphonal 
Choir, played either piano or drums for the NA- 1 0, and drums in 
the Concert Band. Ark's determination and ability insure him success 
in the Navy, and the class of '60 salutes one of its outstanding 
members. 





DENNIS HOWELL VIED 

Wyatt, Missouri 

Twenty-two year old Dennis, who hails from Wyatt, Missouri, 
was one of the main entertainers of the twenty-fourth company, hie 
could be found almost every Saturday evening holding a jam-session 
with his guitar. hHe graduated from high school in a class of twelve 
in 1956, and came directly to the Academy, hie was active in the 
Newman Club and helped work at many of the club's tea fights. An 
ex-stockboy in a grocery store, Dennis plans to go into Naval 
Aviation. hHe has been a valuable asset to the Brigade and will 
surely continue his good work as an aviator. 





EDUARD LUDWIG von FISCHER III 

Beloit, Wisconsin 

From the way that von Fischer The Third talks of climbing 
mountains when he's not here at Navy, one would think that he is 
far from being suited to his choice of submarines. On the other 
hand, after residing in Mother "B" for four years, he should be 
able to take the close quarters. Ed has been active both inside 
and in the great outdoors. His interests vary from working on the 
Log staff to rowing and sailing. There are times, however, when the 
weekend yawl races put a crimp into his continuous battle for and 
against the opposite sex. Choosing the Navy as his career, Ed will 
give the Service a very versatile and well rounded officer.

HENRY von KOLNITZ. JR. 

Columbia, South Carolina 

When Henry canne to the Naval Academy he brought with 
him the easy going, likeable personality of a true southern gen+lennan. 
His home has always been South Carolina, where he spent a year 
between high school and the Academy at USC playing freshman 
football. A knee injury prevented Henry from trying for the Navy 
varsity, but he has been a leader in company football and squash 
as well as a member of his plebe rifle team. Not one to resist feminine 
charm, Henry made it a point to be present at his share of Naval 
Academy social events. A quiet man desiring fast action, Henry 
joined the men who chose their career in Navy Air. 



JOHN CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS 

Ridgewood, New Jersey 

John came to the Naval Academy from Ridgewood, New 
Jersey, after spending one year at Holy Cross. He is known as "Bear," 
"J. C," and "Big City" throughout the Brigade. After playing plebe 
lacrosse, "Bear" moved up to the varsity lacrosse club and spent 
three years clubbing his opponents to defeat. Sports car driving is 
his most cherished hobby and he was the president of the Automotive 
Engineering Club first class year. Among his many interests skin 
diving and listening to jazz with Coleman Hawkins at the top of his 
list, rank number two and three next to the sound of growling engines. 
After graduation, "J. C." plans to enter the Air Force and fly the 
fastest planes in the world and also to reach his goal of becoming 
a test pilot In the new space age.

JOHN DOUGLAS WILLIAMS 

Waverly, Iowa 

If you were looking for an intelligent argument on any subject, 
you did not miss talking to John! His specialty was current affairs; in 
fact, he was usually ahead of the news. This Midwesterner was so 
excited about the Academy that he entered within a month after 
graduating from Waverly High School. During his four years John 
had a hand in a variety of activities: Drum and Bugle Corps, Foreign 
Relations Club, Musical Clubs, and "a bit of extracurricular early 
morning running during fourth class year." John also enjoyed tennis, 
golf, track, and dragging; and despite the rumors, he did study on 
occasion. John, like any good Academy grad, plans on being a top- 
notch Navy Line officer, preferably the nuclear type!

Norfolk, Virginia 

"Big Mike," born here in our dear, unforgettable Crabtown, 
arrived on the banks of the Severn fresh from another town dear to 
the hearts of many of us — Norfolk, Virginia — where he excelled for 
four years In academics as well as on the basketball court. Mike's 
fondness for the opposite sex was only surpassed by his love for 
tennis. You could always be sure of finding him out on the tennis 
courts. Mike will always be remembered for his affable outlook on 
life. hHe was a true friend who would always go out of his way to 
help a friend in need. Mike is firmly convinced Navy Air is mighty 
fair. To a guy with Mike's qualifications and outlook on life, no 
pinnacle is too high to be climbed. 



JAMES RUSSEL WILSON 

Altadena, California 

Jim Wilson, son of Captain R. L. Wilson, attended Columbia 
Prep before he entered the academy June 25, 1956. During his 
stay at the academy Jim made a name for himself by his fighting 
spirit. This was apparent as he lettered in varsity 150-pound football. 
Jim's prowess was apparent on other fields as he was known to 
"drag" some of the best looking girls ever to spend a weekend at 
USNA. After graduation Jim expects to go Navy Line and perhaps 
to destroyers.

No one chose a more difficult means of acquiring an educa-

While Bill studies hard during the week, he never lets academics 
Interfere with any of his extracurricular activities. Many afternoons 
of hard work with wrestling and track have given him a fine reputation 
as an athlete to complement his reputation as a talkative sailor from 
St. Petersburg. This handsome sandblower's most admirable trait 
is his most obvious — he is always ready with a helping hand.

hrough study and practical instruction to provide the mid- 
shipmen with a basic education and knowledge of the naval 
profession; to develop them morally, mentally, and phys- 
ically — ." We all recognize this as the opening paragraph of the Mis- 
sion of the Naval Academy. Perhaps, as plebes, we thought of it 
merely as ammunition for use as a question asked by some upperclass- 
man. Then we began to see, as our training and learning progressed 
further, that our duties consisted of the carrying out of this mission 
to its fullest extent — to hasten our mental and physical growth while 
proceeding to develop our characters brought here from homes where 
our parents and teachers had carefully nurtured them4f ^g;^ 

At each and every chapel service, during our classroom drills, 
studying in our rooms in Bancroft Hall, and in those often strenuous 
physical training drills, the way towards being a gentleman, a man, 
and a true Naval Officer was pointed out. We were first provided 
with a strong base upon which to build as we studied chemistry, 
physics, electricity, higher mathematics, history, government, foreign 
languages, engineering drawing, and other subjects designed, not to 
turn out engineers or physicists or historians, but to lead into and 
supplement our professional subjects such as navigation, ordnance, 
ship design, naval history, and military law. Our education was 
planned, not to give us a wealth of knowledge concerning one subject, 
but to give us a storeroom of building blocks with which we are now 
sent out as junior officers. It is now left up to us to use these building 
blocks in order to provide the officer corps with capable young junior 
officers, worthy of advancement and able to receive the responsibility 
of the defense of the nation upon our shoulders.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 



To serve our country faithfully, we must serve 
our God faithfully. A great many of us can look back 
on those Sunday mornings following weeks which made 
us wish we had never left home. Reciting the Prayer 
of a Midshipman, listening to the Chaplain's comfort- 
ing words, and hearing our magnificent choirs gave us 
back our desire and strength, and we faced that next 
week with increased determination. 

This peace of mind was not only to be had on 
Sundays, for the Chaplains were always ready to greet 
us as Christian friends, helping us to meet our prob- 
lems and face our sorrows and disappointments.

ENGINEERING 



It behooves us as naval officers to have this 
basic knowledge in many fields. We are enabled 
to study further and are given the instruments to 
make ourselves better men and more capable 
officers.

322 



SOCIAL SCIENCES 




From composition and literature we 
progressed to European History, foreign pol- 
icy, government, economics. na\al history, and 
finally advanced composition and literature. 
Not only did we struggle with a foreign lan- 
guage such as Russian. Spanish. Italian. 
French, or German: we also fought to master 
the English language in speech class and at 
after-dinner speaking engagements. By these 
studies and recitations the foundations for our 
future careers were further strenulhened. 




323 




324 



PROFESSIONAL 



In our last two years, as second class- 
men and first classmen, we were finally con- 
fronted with the challenge of our future pro- 
fessions — that wealth of professional know- 
how, material, and fact that remained to be 
learned. Although we could only start to learn, 
we soon became fascinated and stjmetimes even 
frustrated with that art called navigation, its 
charts, tide tables, current tables, nautical al- 
manacs. delta-D sight forms, parallel rulers, 
star finders, etc. 





326 




PROFESSIONAL 



While we learned how to find our way 
ahout the seas by consulting those heavenly 
bodies, w'e also were discovering thai there 
was more to firing a salvo than pulling the 
trigger. Ordnance and Gunner\ presented its 
every nut and bolt to us and we soon had some 
knowledge of present na\al weapons and those 
of the future. Vt c all realize that we have only 
touched on the stockpile nf iiif(}rmation and 
knowledge available to us and we all niii--l 
strive to be leaders who ""know our stuff." 








HYGIENE 



Carrying out our duties and responsibilities to 
the best of our abilities required many long hours of 
hard work, study, and play. These long hours dictated 
the need for excellence of health and physical condi- 
tion. By means of annual physicals, periodic dental 
appointments, and individual visits to the doctors in 
Sick Quarters, we maintained a careful check on our 
state of well-being. 

Over in MacDonough Hall and the Field House, 
the Physical Education Department not only conducted 
tests to determine our physical and athletic abilities 
such as the agility test, the physical aptitude test, and 
the mile run, but taught us many of the survival tech- 
niques of keeping afloat while in the water or of 
protecting ourselves by use of hand-to-hand combat. 
Although those gruelling tests up in the natatorium, 
the wrestling loft, and the boxing rings were not much 
fun at the time, perhaps we'll see the real value of 
them in the near future. 

Each one of us can honestly say that we have 
been well instructed and counseled and we are able to 
take care of ourselves.

The Yard

i 



During the course of our four-year stay here at the Academy, 
each one of us is struck at one time or another by the pres- 
ence of the yard. Something about it will make us pause and 
reflect its significance. It may be the tradition of its monuments, the 
beauty of its buildings, or even the glory of its nature. There is some- 
thing there for everyone which will etch itself deep in the memory. 

But the Yard is not a personal thing confined for midshipmen 
only. It is, in fact, the most public area we have here. Every visitor, 
every tourist, every midshipman is first greeted by the lawns, the' 
trees, the construction, the memorials which make up our yard. And 
this first impression is usually an impressive one, for all is arranged 
with a sort of beauty and magnificence. But there are many intangi- 
bles that the Yard has to offer, intangibles that go unnoticed by the 
casual visitor but which are most important to us. 

Of these intangibles are included the traditions, the heroics, the 
victorious spirit, the strong character which have represented our 
Navy and our nation since their births. A moment's reflection on the 
meaning of the memorials and symbols which surround us daily serves 
to remind us of those traits which have made our country great. In fact, 
these meanings have a universal application. They are a guide to a 
better world, a means for a just peace. They hold before the world 
the deeds of great men, men of that caliber which is beneficial to 
every nation. ^WiHSIK" 11111""^ 

The Yard may change her physical appearance, but her lessons 
remain the same. We will remember her well, for she is a great part 
of the everyday life of a midshipman. But more important, we must 
remember her meanings. These are a part of her, and are that part 
which we will carry with us and which will aid us as we all leave 
for different ports.

Four Years 

Section Edited by ANTHONY JOHN LANZETTA 



For most of us, our tenure as midshipmen has lasted four years. 
In some respects they have been the longest four years of our 
lives, but in other respects we have hardly been able to 
keep track of the fleeting time. In these four years we have matured, 
gained some knowledge, learned some practical skills, and developed 
physically. They have probably been the most important four years 
of our lives. 

During this period at the Naval Academy, we have accomplished 
many things. We have been taught the fundamentals of infantry drill, 
exposed to the joys of sailing, and shown the meaning of honor and 
discipline. We have been tutored in many subjects from mathematics, 
thermodynamics, and electronics, to history, literature, and foreign 
languages. We have been instructed in professional matters from 
leadership and meteorology to ordnance and gunnery. We have 
cruised as enlisted men and as officers. We have lived with marines 
and we have lived with aviators. There is a tremendous diversity of 
experiences that we have undergone in our four years. g 

But along with this diverse instruction, along with this extensive 
training, we receive much more. Words such as honor, character, 
integrity, and leadership take on a new meaning. Their concepts al- 
most become living things. Their development is stressed daily and 
their importance is second to none. Our four years here have given 
us these and they will stay with us as long as we need them. They 
are our most effective weapons for conquering the trials of life. 

With the academic, physical, and character development which 
we are given at the Academy, we are well prepared to face any future 
task. Our four years have begun to ingrain in us those qualities which 
are manifested in great men. These qualities will enable us to take 
our places in the world, to make it a better world, to aid us in aiding 
all men.

The first week i)roduccfl |)erha|js the frreat- 
est change of life and routine that anv of us will 
ever experience. After Iieiniz suorii iiild the Navy 
in Memorial Hall, ue returned to our rooms and 
the undertaking of j)lehe summer routine. The 
unending stenciling process, the preparal ion of a 
neat locker, the first formations and infanlrv 
drills, and the early morning hours came as a 
great surprise for most of us. Here occumd 
the dependence u|)on the letter from home, a 
feeling which would exist for the remainder of 
our time at the Naval Academy. 









Practical drill was the keynote of our summer 
training program. Everything we engaged in was 
pointed toward giving us a firm foundation for the 
military, professional, and academic training we 
would receive in our next four years. In our first 
contact with the Executive Department, we were 
taught the fundamental close order drill procedure, 
and we spent much time on Hospital Point trying to 
attain near perfection. The Ordnance Department 
contributed to our early training in day long drills 
at the rifle range.

In seamanship, we started at the beginning 
and literally worked our way up. From the drills 
in whale boats, we progressed to the knockabouts 
and yawls, and finally to the motor driven 
launches. We had flag and semaphore drills and 
w-ere fortunate enough to receive a little down to 
earth philosophy from a wise old sailor by the 
name of "Shorty" at our jackstay drills. In be- 
tween all of this, we managed to learn how to 
weld, turn a pattern foi a stuffing box gland, and 
later cast one of these same masterpieces.

JUNE-SEPTEMBER 



'56-'57 



Plebe year he(i,an, but the rest of the world 
continued on its way. As in all years, history was 
written throughout this year. The Andrea Doria 
collided with the Stockholm . . . Needles tvon the 
Kentucky Derby . . . President Eisenhower ivas 
re-elected for another term . . . Grace Kelly mar- 
ried Prince Rainier of Monaco . . . The U.S.S. 
Saratoga, the largest warship of the ivorld, was 
commissioned . . . Gen. Norstad succeeded Gen. 
Gruenther as Supreme Allied Cdr., Europe . . . 
Best film of the year was "Marty" . . . Morocco 
and Algiers tvon their independence. 



Plebe 




Hooooo! 



The sound of those two hellovving words 
presented no music to our ears. Plebe year, itself, 
presented many unsurmountable problems and try- 
ing situations for the majority of us. But in the 
final analysis, we all considered it a worthwhile 
experience. The evenings spent braced up in an 
upperclassman's room, the varied professional 
questions, and the many innovations such as shov- 
ing out. conducting flight ops, and the uniform 
races, all were a definite part of our first year. 
For the midshipman with a good sense of humor 
and solid motivation, plebe year was simply ac- 
cepted as another necessary step toward the final 
goal. 




As part of the Naval Academy's 
role of good will and world cooperation, 
many foreign dignitaries visited us dur- 
ing 1956-1957, as in the previous years. 
The first thing we thought about was the 
grant of amnesty for the minor offenders, 
but our sincere hospitality was really a 
way of telling such men as King Saud of 
Saudi Arabia that we believed in a free 
and peaceful world. 




the brighter side 




Plebe year was not completely academics 
and professional work. The football season, with 
its away trips to Baltimore and Philadelphia, 
helped to add hope considerably. The big game 
with Army ended in a 7-7 tie, resulting in only 
one week of carry-on. but Christmas leave was just 
around the corner. Our first leave meant reuniting 
with families and friends, seeing familiar land- 
scapes, and generally a well-earned break from the 
daily academy routine.

With final exams at the end of May, the

the Class of 1957's "No More Rivers" ceremony, 
we enjoyed our first Academy June Week. Being 
able to drag to the Farewell Ball and move up to 
3/c midshipmen provided a successful end to an 
eventful plebe year, a year which marked another 
milestone along the road to a commission.

Youngster 
Cruise

Youngster Cruise provided 
many more new experiences for 
us all. We were soon to find out 
that it was not a pleasure cruise 
dedicated to letter writing and sun 
bathing. We were underway in 
our first contact with Naval fleet 
activities and procedures. We he- 
came regular seamen, standing 
enlisted men's watches, carrying 
out their daily duties, and man- 
ning their positions during gen- 
eral quarters and gun-firing drills. 







Norfolk. Virginia, and the International 
Naval Review was our first stop. Assembled in 
Hampton Roads were ships from nations over the 
entire face of the globe. This magnificent demon- 
stration of sea power was indeed a tribute to the 
desire for world peace through cooperation by all 
nations concerned. 








359 



We had the unique experience of changing 
from a pollywog to a shellback as we crossed the 
equator on our way to Brazil. After the pre- 
crossing warnings and threats which we were 
given, the shellbacks finally had their chance. We 
met the royal court of King Neptunist Rex. We 
crawled through garbage chutes and got paddled, 
and we were finally dunked. But at the end of the 
day we were full-fledged shellbacks and could look 
forward eagerly to our next crossing.

Getting back in the swing of things at Ban- 
croft Hall meant coming in contact with many new 
experiences. As we unloaded our cruise boxes and 
talked over leave and sea stories with our friends, 
we noticed that there was now a class lower 
than us. 





I 



We were also promised many things which 
were soon to come true, such as Dilbert Dunker 
drills, many new and difficult subjects to study, 
and still limited rates and liberty. We were con- 
sidered plebes with carry on. but were very will- 
ing to accept this new role.

Third Class year produced the chance for 
us to indulge in some of the many pleasures we 
had missed during the previous year. When we 
were not studying, we were able to hit the blue 
trampoline, surrounded by a hi-fi background. Be- 
ing able to drag on week-ends and having a little 
more free time to relax meant a great deal to us. 
With the beginning of this social life, we found 
the truth in making a little bit of money go a 
long way. 




Part of new youngster rates. 




Soon another football season was upon us, 
and quite a memorable one too with a visit from 
"Ike" at the 15U lb. Football Game, a victory over 
Army, and a win over Rice in the Cotton Bowl. 

With that win over Army the Plebes car- 
ried on. and we all settled back to wait for leave 
to come, which wasn't too soon at all. It wasn't 
that we didn't like USNA. but just that . . . well, 
you know how it was. 



AWAY 

THE 

REINA 



'Twas a 12 November 1957 when the 
"fastest ship in the world" was unfastened and 
slowly moved away to her final resting place. 
Named in honor of Queen Mercedes of Spain, 
the ship was built at Cartagena. Spain, in 
1887 and served under the Spanish flag until 
she was sunk at Santiago, Cuba. She became 
a unit of the United States Navy when she 
was raised in 1899. 






tit was customary for man) years for 
the station ship to serve as "brig'" for mid- 
shipmen being punished for serious infractions 
of I SNA Regs. During this ])eriod of con- 
finement these mids attended all regular drills 
and recitations, but slept in hammocks and 
ate aboard the Reina. This practice was 
abolished only as late as 5 September 1940 




Since September 1940, the ship was 
used as living quarters for the enlisted per- 
sonnel assigned to the Naval Academy. The 
Reina had another claim to fame in that it 
was the only ship in the U. S. Navy which 
had the CO. and his family living aboard 
permanently.

Tilt' Reina wasn't the oiiU nld fiitrul that we 
said goodbye to this year. On 31 March 195H. after 
countless years of devoted service to the Navy. Chief 
Metzger. known to all his friends as "Shorty." retired. 
The legend of Shorty and his wisdom will loiii; he told 
and remembered. The profits of his advice will for- 
ever be rea[)ed. Farewell to an old friend! 

By then the smell of spring was in the air. 
announcing the end of our second year at Navy. Old 
hands that we were by now. we took exams in stride 
and prepared for the festivities of June Week. In- 
cluded in these was the preparation of the Herndon 
Monument for the Class of '61, a job long awaited by 
both '60 and '61. Full dragging privileges added to 
the enjovment of that fun-filled week.

Scarcely had the cheers at graduation 
died when we formed up and embarked on 
LST's for our trip to Little Creek. Virginia, 
and the TRAMID phase of this summer. At 
Little Creek, we received and participated in 
two and one half weeks of Marine Corps 
Amphibious indoctrination. We studied and 
operated in the wave landings, the helicopter 
phase, and the primary beach tactics. At the 
close of TRAMID. we conducted a full scale 
amphibious attack on one of the Virginia 
beaches. 






371 





From TRAMID, we split up and went 
many different ways, some on leave, some to 
the Academy to help indoctrinate the new class 
of plebes, while the rest of us continued on 
our own training program. This part of our 
summer program consisted, of field trips to 
aircraft corporations and a visit to the Dam- 
age Control School in Philadelphia, Penn. At 
the aircraft plants, we saw everything from the 
present production lines to the future plans 
for the Space Age. In Philadelphia we were 
instructed in all phases of fire fighting and 
damage control procedure. Our tours of 
places of research and development could 
hardly be complete without a visit to the 
world's largest towing basin, so our journey 
included a trip to David Taylor Model Basin.

to come during our stay in this Gulf city. 

We came here to learn the fundamentals 
of flving. and the many hours spent in the 
T-34's. T-28's. and T2V's played a large part 
in our work. As necessary precautions, we 
also went through the ejection seat trainer, as 
well as the high altitude pressure chamber. 

The story of naval aviation could 
hardly be told without some mention of the 
importance of helicopters, and so, in this field 
also, we were fortunate enough to receive an 
amount, brief as it was, of training and 
instruction. 







To increase the scope of our well-roundecl 
education, we were also given training in other 
areas, mainly beaches, dance floors, and Officer's 
Clubs. Southern hospitality was in full bloom 
during our stay in Pensacola and helped to make 
second class summer most enjoyable.

From Pensacola, we moved to Jacksonville 
and vicinity for a short but enjoyable stay. After 
learning more about the fighters and attack squad- 
rons, we flew blimps at Glynco. took a long envious 
look at the Crusader Squadrons at Cecil Field, and 
finallv. had a short cruise on a submarine at May- 
port. In all ways our Aviation Summer was a 
success, giving us a clear and concise picture of 
how the Navy Air branch and the Marine Corps 
were working toward the L . S. goal, that of peace 
through World Cooperation.

YEAR 



SEPTEMBER-SEFTEMBKR '58-'5«; 

Second Class year came into bein{> and ivith 
it brought many surprises in the world of news. 
This year marked . . . the revolution in Cuba and 
the rise of Fidel Castro . . . the landing, of U. S. 
Marines at Beirut, Lebanon, in the latest world 
crises . . . the first L'. S. satellite launched as Ex- 
plorer I . . . the passing of Pope Pius XII in 
Rome . . . the Wisconsin, last of our battleships, 
was decommissioned . . . and the Nautilus made 
history with its crossing beneath the Polar icecap. 





Second Class year lost no time in get- 
ting into full swing as soon as leave was over. 
Traditionally, and rightly so, this was our 
hardest year academically speaking; the hy- 
word of the year was "study." For the first 
time, we felt the brunt of the truly professional 
subjects, as Ordnance and Navigation came 
into our curriculum. 

Here, too. we were allowed a larger 
hand in helping to indoctrinate the Plebes, 
though there still were many restrictions gov- 
erning us. 



Construction 
Days . . , 



The wheels of progress churned, and with them. Mother 
Bancroft and her surroundings began to undergo quite a feat 
of facelifting. Many's the time when the thumping of a pile 
driver or the toot of a dredge barge in the middle of the night 
reminded us of the work being done. The landfill was a tre- 
mendous project and one well needed. 

At the same time, our own Memorial Stadium was 
quickly becoming a reality after decades of planning and saving. 
Named the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, it now 
stands as a tribute to those men who have been so faithfully 
devoted to the service of their country. 










By this time another successful foot- 
ball season was well underway. The Thursday 
night pep-rallies, the team send-offs, and the 
march-on's all became a definite and enjoy- 
able part of our fall lives at Navy. 

But we soon had only a few days before 
Christmas Leave, and though the studies con- 
tinued, we still found time to enjoy the Christ- 
mas Hop. Handel's Messiah sung by our own 
choir and the Hood College Choir, and make 
those all-important travel reservations. 



n 






We were again into that time of the year 
when it is dreary and there are no leaves on the 
trees or in sight. The daily check for mail from 
home, the extra duty, and the shenanigans with the 
model of the Polaris and the plebes were all a 
part of our Second Class year. 200th Night, the 
number of days before '59's graduation, was 
marked by an exchange of rates by us with the 
Plebes, and gave the plebes an opportunity to sit 
at the other end of the firing line. 







WELCOME 

WOO 
POO 





Definitely one of the more 
important events during our four 
years. Exchange Weekend was 
awaited by all of us. Through 
the visit of the Long Gray Line 
here, we were afforded the oppor- 
tunity of showing off our insti- 
tution with full pride to our 
Armv contemporaries, and of giv- 
ing them the insight on our lives 
as Midshipmen and fellow future 
officers of American Armed 
Forces. 




AND THIS WAS 



WEST POINT 




i - . 

» . . .. 



386 




Ui 



To enable us to understand the Army 
way of life a bit better, we were allowed to 
visit West Point on various weekends. We 
went to classes with the K-Dets, learned of 
the military's methods of warfare, and were 
exposed to the principles that were to govern 
them as officers — all towards an understand- 
ing that, in the future, would bring many 
benefits through valuable cooperation. 






The highlight of Second Class year 
was the loiig-aivaited Ring Dance. This event 
ivas more than this, for it marked the climax 
of a story within a story — a tale that grew 
as '60 aged. It began many months prior to 
this day ivhen the first sketches of the Ring 
Committee gave form to our Crest. We pro- 
ceeded from receipt of the Crest to ring try- 
ons and finally reached the milestone when 
15 April 1959 arrived and brought ivith it 
the treasured rings of another Naval Academy 
class. 





During; the last few remaininp ueeks 
before the big night, preparations for the 
famed dance ivere ivell in order. The Ring 
Dance Committee ivorked feverishly to trans- 
form MacDonough Hall into a colorful world 
of Oriental atmosphere. 

30 May arrived and the yard began to 
be filled with girls in formals and mids in 
"yachting dress'' as the photographers frantic- 
ally worked to take pictures of our class. That 
night we nervously sat through the Ring Dance 
Dinner, and by its completion, the orchestra 
of Ralph Marterie was already prepared for 
the start of the dance, so it began. 

The dance ivas characterized by an end- 
less line through the two large rings. As each 
couple stepped into the ring, the girl placed 
the class ring on the midshipman's finger, and 
thus was the climax of the story within the 
story — our Ring Story. The ending? Never. 
For always and alivays ivill this symbol of 
work, perseverance and endurance be with us 
as an eternal reminder of our four years.

— First Class Cruise — at long last; Here 
marked our first taste of officer life, a preview of 
things to come. Youngster cruise was spent in the 
role of enlisted man . . . 




Here was cur opportunity to see the hardware 
of our Weapons Department and the tactical maneu- 
vers of our Navigation Department put to practice. 




. . But now we were to realize how the other body of a ship"s 
force lived, worked, and played. The inevitable watches were still there, 
but now they were as JOODs. Asst. CIC Officer, Engineering Officer, 
and other comparable billets.

Blow negative to the mark 



Fire one, fire two, fire three! 




Some of us were able to enjoy a submarine cruise, and it 
was here that man) hearts were won by the Silent Service of our 
Navy. Diving, surfacing, snorkeling, and periscope approaches 
soon became cotTimonplace during our indoctrination to this way 
of life. Despite the cramped quarters and close living, we all ad- 
justed rapidly and began to appreciate and admire the vital role 
that submarines have in our modern Navy. By the end of cruise 
for many of us, this admiration had been replaced by a profound 
desire to enter this service and win the coveted dolphins of the 
submariner. 




Still, there were others who were 
to enjoy the life of the Destroyer Navy, 
with Fleet Cruises in the Mediterannean, 
Western Atlantic, and the Far East. Prac- 
tical instruction was the by-word: learn 
by doing — and learn we did. 




Our tasks were many: navigating, conning the ship, in-port watches, CIC 
watches and many others. Sextants, the DRT, and stadimeters became our tools, and 
we used them well. One found considerable work to do as an assistant to his 
officer advisor in his respective billet. 




396 





Learning to meet people of other nations and to 
understand their way of life was equally as important as 
the professional training we received in our search for 
a well-rounded education. Again we learned by doing, 
and the visits to so many different foreign ports reaped 
many benefits. We'll not soon forget the memories of 
the French Riviera, of sunny Italy, of quaint Gibraltar 
town, and of the mystic world of the Far East. 




C'est La Vie — La France.

Where are you??? You're in Palma, in Madrid, in Barce- 
lona, in any city where the bullfight is looked forward to as any 
major league baseball game in the United States. Again it was 
an opportunity to become acquainted with the customs of another 
country — and thus again we reaped the benefits of being a Naval

For many of us. cruises in the Mediterranean 
Sea meant visits to Italian |K)rts and a generous 
amount of welcometl lil)erty. Tlie Italian l)ea(hes south 
of Genoa on the Italian Riviera, as well as those at 
Tirania, Capri, and Is<hia were most l)eautiful. The 
Isle of Capri itself was a big attraction with its pic- 
turesque and colorful scenery. 

For beauty and culture, the cities of Rome and 
Florence were high on our lists of places to see. The 
memories of the great cathedrals such as St. Peter's 
Basilica, plus other ancient structures such as the 
Colosseum are ones we shall never forget. 







Year 



World history continued on its way as our last leg at Navy 
began. This penod before us held, among other things . . . The 
launching of the IS. S. Savannah, the world's first atomic merchant 
ship . . . the bathyscaphe Trieste reaching a record dive of 37,500 
feet in the Pacific . . . President Eisenhower's goodwill tour to 
Europe, the Middle East, Africa, arul Asia . . . Queen Elizabeth is 
blessed with a baby boy . . . The death of Gen. George C. Marshall, 
a leader of world developments . . . the launching of the nuclear 
powered, missile-carrying submarine, Patrick Henry . . . arul In- 
gemar Johannsons capture of the world heavyweight boxing title. 





First Class year finally arrived, to be sure a year long awaited 
and certainly welcomed. Marked by the passing of so many "lasts," 
the coming months were to be the busiest ever. These were the times 
of the After Dinner Speaking sessions, those sleepy Hygiene lectures, 
the Ordnance competitions, the experiences with the oscilloscopes 
in Skinny lab. and those all-important commissioning physicals. 
Added responsibilities were certainly in order as we took over 
command of the Brigade and set out on the heavy tasks of indoc- 
trinating a new class of Plebes.

Here was our last football season — the most memorable 
one we ever experienced. The early highlight of the season came 
with the dedication of the new Navy-Marine Corps Memorial 
Stadium, a long time dream of so many unselfish men. As in 
the past, we were still fortunate enough to follow the team to 
some of its away games, to Norfolk, Philadelphia, Baltimore, 
and again to the City of Brotherly Love for the Army game. 



A perfect march-on 





Though we had suffered a few losses, our 
spirits were undaunted; a bright ending was still 
to be found. By the time the Army game arrived, 
we were ready to find it. The decorations, the 
cheering in ranks, and the climatic pep rally all 
helped peak the spirit unlike other years. When 
the weekend had passed, we thanked the team for 
its 43-12 victory and looked forward to Christmas. 







The passing of the winter exams left 
crowded library and a steady stream, be- 
tween Bancroft and Mahan Hall, of firsties 
loaded down with books were signs of the 
times as we struggled to finish our term 
papers — another milestone. To keep the 
game interesting, the evening lectures, so 
typical of First Class year, were still with

as common to the Naval Academy as a Wednesclay

a tale of the Plel)es who hecome First Class for a few 
short hours, and in this short time, struggle to strike 
back at the Firsties-turned-Plebes before the bell sound- 
ing study hour rings and turns all things back to 
nomial. This is the night of 100 days before grad- 
uation.

By the time spring had arrived, term papers 
were in and proverbial "coast button" had been found 
and pushed. It was all downhill now, with only six 
more rivers until the end of the road. Spring fever 
set in and like always, brought with it 1/c desires for 
new cars and graduation outfits. Time was short now: 
the sun was quickly setting on our four years at Nav)'. 



The end was drawing near. 



The time to spend.

NO MORE RIVERS, 





NO MORE RIVERS, TO CROSS 



At last . . . the final exam: for us. it was Weapons. Following came 
the traditional show put on by the graduating class and which jested of the 
four long years. We will never forget the comical imitations of classroom 
scenes, a certain P.E. prof, and most of all the portrayal of the first and 
third battalion officers in action. At last we were out of the woods . . . 
no more rivers to cross. 




NATIONAL 
CHAMPS 



One of the attractions of June Week is the weekend 
which brings the Army-Navy spring sports contests. The 
highlight of the season was the meeting of Army and Navy 
in lacrosse. Both teams undefeated, both teams having 
beaten the perennial powerhouses, both teams ready: the 



game was a classic. Navy was victorious with a score of 
10-7 in a game long to be remembered. This Navy cinderella 
team had brought home the National Collegiate Lacrosse 
Championship and had won it at the hands of the long 
gray line.

Elsewhere the same day, Navy soared to un- 
dis|)iitpd victory over Army in track. The skill of 
potential Olympian McHenry and of Lou Hilder. 
Bud Maxon and many others could not be matched. 
The baseball team likewise took the bacon from the 
worn out Army mule. The tennis team stretched their 
unprecedented record to 13 consecutive years over 
Army. Only the golf team fared unsuccessfully this 
year, but even they were not beaten until the last 
man played his last hole. And the weekend stood 
Army 1. Navy 1. 

Earlier, in late April, in New York the Navy 
Eencing team won the National Collegiate Fencing 
Championship. Later it was announced that two '60 
graduates. Al Morales and Joe Palletta. would com- 
pete in the Rome 01ym|)ics. 

Later, in mid July, the Navy Varsity crew 
team, coached by Lou Lindsey. made a spectacular 
showing in the finals of the Olympic tryouts. The 
team, spurred with desire, with a Navy heart, and 
eight strong backs, defeated California going away 
to win the honor of representing the Lnited States 
in the 1960 Rome Olympics. 








The colorful and gay festiv- 
ities of June Week were many. Ad- 
miral Arleigh Burke. Chief of Naval 
Operations, gave the Baccalaureate 
address. The Superintendent's Gar- 
den I^arty on Sunday evening pro- 
vided I the graduating class, their 
parents and guests with a beautiful

inclu<J?d the youngster hop. the sec- 
ond tlass Ring Dance, this year 
aboar|l a Chesapeake Bay steamer, 
the N Club dance at the boating 
docks lof Hubbard Hall, the E Dance, 
and last but not least, the graduating 
class's Farewell Ball. Other activities

outstaiiding achievements to the class 
of 1960.

FINAL 

MOMENTS 



At 1100 on June 8. 1960. the graduating 
class assembled in the Naval Academy Field House 
The class consisting of 797 members heard first an 
opening address by the Superintendent. Admiral 
Charles L. Melson. USN. The Honorable Henry 
Cabot Lodge. United States Ambassador to the 
United Nations, gave the commencement address. 
His excellent speech received undivided attention 
and touched on our futufe. what we should expect, 
and what was expected of us by the American 
people. 

Men graduating with distinction were pre- 
sented their diplomas individually in order of merit. 
Midshipman Alton Thompson and Midshipman 
Tracy Tucker stood numbers one and two respec- 
tivelv in the Class of 1960.

After the graduation ceremony the new ensigns 
don their officer's caps and shoulder boards. Tradition- 
ally one's mother and one's girl do the honors. While 
the plebes run toward the Hernon Monument, wedding 
bells can be heard from the Chapel. This year Ensign 
i Lavery's wedding was the first of 48 to be held in the 

^ Naval Academy Chapel. The buz of activity, the numer- 

ous colorful events of June Week were now over, and 
the graduates are now junior officers in our armed 
forces deployed to all corners of the earth to guard 
our World Peace.

Section Edited by GEOK(,^ ASHINGTO.N DO\^ KLL 



It has been said that "behind man's every deed Hes the influence 
of a woman."' This quote is as apphcable to a midshipman as to 
anyone else. From the first Naval Academy Hop on 15 January 
1846, just three months after the opening of the school, to the pres- 
ent, the "drag" has had a tradition all her own. 

To the midshipman, weary of study, tired of marching, bored 
with the ceaseless routine of his everyday life, the companionship 
of a young lady is a pleasant and most welcomed change. She provides 
him with a chance to enjoy the activities of the Yard and to develop 
himself socially. But most important she is an ego-builder, a special 
pride. She will provide the most pleasant of memories along with the 
feeling of a little self-satisfaction so much missed in everyday life. 
She is so nice to be with and so hard to say good-by to. -^^^^ 

She is the special someone who invades his daily thoughts, the 
one who gives him the feeling that someone appreciates his efforts. 
And if she is special enough, she will be the one to whom he gives 
his class crest, the coveted pin which means so much to him, as well 
as to her. And, should he decide to share his career with her, he may 
present her with a miniature of his class ring, his most prized material 
possession. 

We have dedicated this section to those girls who have endured 
the rushing, the walking, all the difficulties of an academy week- 
end to lighten the life of some midshipman. May the girls continue 
to refresh, to bolster, to encourage the midshipmen as they have done 
for one hundred and fifteen years, and may the mid always be ap- 
preciative of the thoughtful young creature who does so much to 
complement and embellish his existence. 



A little nautical knowledge for the drag 





ance, bunny hop and civilian clothes — a good evening 




During the normal week of \\orkda\s. entertainment and re- 
laxation are virtually unknown to the average mid. The weekend 
usually starts when noon meal formation ends, and then the midship- 
man greets his girl and whoosh, they're off. She has become a drag. 
The run into town to ha\e a hite to eat must he done with haste, 
because there is always a l>asketball game, a swimming meet, or some 
other sporting event to attend. 

After evening meal formation and supper in town, the couple 
step out into whatever Saturday night has in store for them. On a 
weekend which precedes a holiday there is usually a formal hop. 
Movies, a concert or a Masquerader's show may also provide the 
evening's entertainment. 

On Sunday the pace slackens. After Chapel and another forma- 
tion, the tired couple treat themselves to a leisurely afternoon — a 
\^RiW concert or television at the drag house. After a whirlwind 
weekend there is just enough time for one last goodby, and then back 
to the week's work.

Glass GresI 



Jacksonville hospitality 



The idea of unity and the concept of fratemal- 
ism were indeed important to us as midshipmen. We 
are men of the same profession, of the same class, with 
the same ideals. Our class crest is one more of the 
"ties that hind,"' and since we all had a part in choos- 
ing ours, we all are proud of it and that for which 
it stands. 

Together with our class ring on which the crest 
is tied hack to hack with the Naval Academy seal, it 
will serve to remind us in the future of our four long 
years as midshipmen, of many deep-rooted friendships, 
of the need for co-operation, and of the bond between 
our brother officers.

Few engagement rings are as distinctive as the 
miniature of our class ring which many wives of Naval 
Academy graduates wear. The miniature does more 
than signifv the lyond of marriage: it alsn signifies 
the ties of loyalty to the service of which the husband 
is a part. A ring in the form of a miniature gives added 
meaning to marriage and is the first of many pleasant 
memories brought about as a result of }>eing the wife 
of an Acadenn <jraduate.

Section Kditcd bv DEWS MICHAEL DAVIDSON 



To allow the midshipman his share of diversions from the 
monotony of everyday life, the Naval Academy has produced 
many extracurricular activities. These activities are an oppor- 
tunity for each midshipman to continue the pursuit of any of his 
special interests. They offer to us a chance to participate in almost 
any field of endeavor to our liking. Outside activities develop our 
attained talents in a congenial atmosphere free from the pressures of 
studies. ^ 

For the music lover there are choirs^ a glee club, a band, and 
several specialized musical groups. For the scientifically-minded, 
there are engineering clubs; and for the actors there is the Masquer- 
aders. Such fields as foreign languages, foreign relations and forensics 
are well provided for. If you like to write, there are yearbook staffs 
and the staffs of several magazines which would probably welcome 
you. If you have a special talent or interest, there is a place for you. 

We should all be thankful for the opportunities offered to us by 
the extracurricular activities here at the academy. In the field of our 
own special interest, we can find a little bit of ourselves. A chance to 
develop this interest is a chance to develop our own person. We can 
find more enjoyment in life and become a little more well-rounded. 
The scope of our existence is widened to some degree which is a bene- 
fit both to ourselves and to others. The opportunities for the pursuit of 
these special interests are privileges not to be taken lightly . . . our 
lives here being bettered because of them. 





Dr. Duncan Howlett 



The Naval Academy Christian Association pre- 
sented a fine series of bi-weekly programs in fulfilling 
their mission of helping the midshipman understand 
tlie importance of religion to a naval officer. Also 
providing a chance for Christian fellowship, these 
meetings featured such sj)eakers as Or. Duncan How- 
lett. authority on the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as a 
variety of inspirational music from such groups as 
the USAF Singing Sergeants.

NEWMAN CLUB 

Under the able leadership of Father Rotrige. the 
NewTnan Club, through its bi-weekly meetings, helj)cd 
guide the Roman Catholic midshipmen in their day-to- 
day living. Lectures by well-known Catholic speakers, 
coupled with the availabilit\' of a religious library, 
helped develop the religious aspect of the Catholic mid- 
shipman's character. 




441 



PROTESTANT CHOIR 



The importance and beauty of music in a religious 
service was particularly emphasized by the three choirs singing 
for the services in our Chapel. 

The Chapel Choir led the musical aspect of the Protes- 
tant Divine Services each Sunday morning. In addition to this 
regular contribution, the Choir combined with the Hood 
College Choir each December to bring us their beautiful ver- 
sion of Handel's "Messiah." 



T. D. Paulsen, President of Antiphonal Choir 




442 




CATHOLIC CHOIR 

The Catholic Choir presented an increased repertoire of h}Tnns 
and anthems throughout the year, beautifully supplementing the Roman 
Catholic Chapel service. Under the direction of Joseph McCuen, the 
Choir made several trips, including their annual journey to Trinity 
College. 



ANTIPHONAL CHOIR 

Though the Antiphonal Choir occupied a position out of the view 
of most midshipmen, it nonetheless sang the most melodious of hjTnns 
and complemented the efforts of the Cliapel Choir to add immeasur- 
ably to the impressive beauty of the service.

CLASS OFFICERS 

•-Paiticularlv iiiijxjrtant among extracurricular 
efforts were those classified as class activities. Promot- 
ing intra-class friendship and closeness, these activities 
were instrumental in welding our class into a single, 
cohesive group, and the efforts of the men who partici- 
pated in them will remain as the most memorable 
recollections of our four years at the Academy. 

Of primary' influence in the formulation of our 
class policy and unification of the class on all matters 
was our group of class officers. In addition, the presi- 
dent was responsible for the chair of the Class Honor 
Committee and the Brigade Executive Committee.

To the members and chairman of the Hop Committee goes a vote of 
gratitude for their efforts in making each "dragging"' weekend at the Academy 
so pleasant. Memorable highlights of the committee's activities were the 
Christmas Hop, with the gigantic tree and the toys for the underjirivileged 
children, and the elaborate decorations of the June Week dances. 



RING AND CREST COMMITTEE 

Perhaps the most important day in our four years came on May 30, 
1959, when our drags placed our rings upon our fingers. Carrying our class 
crest and the Academy seal, our rings symboHzed the bond of friendship 
and fraternity among the members of the class. We will always be indebted 
to the members of this committee.

BAG 



The Brigade Activities Committee was probably 
the most influential factor in preserving the "old Navy 
spirit" throughout the year, especially during football 
season. BAC-60 added spice to the pep rallies by 
presenting such beauties as Miss Oklahoma and Miss 
D. C. as an added attraction. 

Each week during the fall, the messhall sported 
banners, and the trees along Stribling Walk would be 
adorned with signs designed to keep the spirit valve 
wide open.

The Cheerleaders played an important part in 
the display of spirit by the Brigade through their 
untiring work at pep rallies, practice inarch-ons, and 
the games. 

Climaxing the year for the BAC was the bon- 
fire in Thompson Stadium — the rallying point for our 
cry of "BEAT ARMY!"

From a relatively insignificant part in Brigade 
activities when we arrived in 1956. the D&B became 
the equal of almost any college band in the field of 
half-time shows. New music was introduced to comple- 
ment the standard marches and new formations were 
devised, giving us a Corps of which we could be 
proud. 



The Drum and Bugle Cotps practiced twice 
each week during the fall to perfect their intricate 
maneuvers which were put on display during the 
activities of our football games.

usually are former members of the football team who 
were unable to play due to injuries. The familiar sight 
of the goalkeepers and "RiU"" leading our team onto 
the field will not soon be forgotten.

This was among the largest of class projects. 
Early youngster year, Raynor Taylor and Buz Soll- 
berger were elected Editor-in-Chief and Business 
Manager, respectively. The remainder of the staff was 
chosen shortly thereafter, and the planning phase of 
our gigantic operation was started. 

From the first day, Ray threw his whole heart 
and all of his energy into the production of the '60 
Bag. His work did not stop with making decisions, for 
he could usually be found performing some detailed part 
of the overall operation — writing copy, developing pic- 
tures, or laying out pages. The manner in which he 
lived up to the trust and confidence placed in him by 
the class goes beyond description, and the proof of his 
dedication lies in the successful completion of this 
book. 

Ray's right hand man throughout the production 
was Torry Rogers, the Managbg Editor and genius of 
the operation. These two worked side by side through 
the wee hours of many mornings, and their efforts were 
largely responsible for making those important deadlines, 
which seemed to appear so suddenly. 

Leading section editors were Mike Lees, Tony 
Lanzetta, and Jim Gorman. Tony's humor and reliability 
made possible one of the finest Four Years sections to 
appear in a Lucky Bag. Jim Gorman, jack of all trades, 
worked year round and has developed a truly inspiring 
sports section. His ability to work with any section 
pulled the staff through many a deadline. Mike Lees, 
Mr. Administration, made possible both the Chain of 
Command section and Biographies section. His many 
hours of untiring work in handling the Biographies 
section were an inspiration to the entire staff. Denny 
Davidson, editor of the Activities section, revealed him- 
self as an accomplished writer quite concious to details. 
Tom Anderson compiled the Academic section and left 
no doubt that he was the right man for the job. 

The indispensable item of every Lucky Bag, 
photography, was handled in superb fashion by Mark 
Golden and George Dowell. Their excellent photographic 
and darkroom techniques provided the staff with a 
seemingly endless supply of pictures representing our 
four years at the Academy. To them a deep debt of 
gratitude is due.

The art work was headed l)\ Wick Wickeiis. His 
work in the Biographies seetioii [jrovided just tlie needed 
spice. Elsewhere in the book are several examples of his 
natural talent. 

While the editorial staff solved the proMeiiis of 
the physical construction of the Bag, Buz Sollberger and 
his staff were concerned with the financial responsibil- 
ities of such a large undertaking. Buz s natural business- 
like mind enabled the editorial staff to introduce many 
new innovations. Dick Rapasky handled the advertising 
in an admirable fashion, and Circulation Manager Dave 
Banner did an outstanding job of selling the finished 
product. Buck Bonifay. Photographic Manager, acted as 
our liaison with the book's official photographer. Aj)eda 
Studios. 

Guiding the staff through the three years of pro- 
duction were the Officer Representatives. Commander 
C. B. Shaw and Lt. Colonel R. H. Twisdale, USMC. 
Lt. Col. Twisdale supervised the important work during 
First Class year, offering timely and helpful advice 
wherever needed. 

Teamwork was the keynote to the production of 
the I960 Lucky Bag. The long hours and tedious tasks 
were transfomied into a classic among yearbooks through 
the spirit of friendly cooperation displayed in the Lucky 
Bag Office. 

We feel that our expended effort has been more 
than rewarded in this book, and hope that it will help 
the reader recall fond memories during the years ahead.

^LOG 





Staff at work 



J. H. Wickens and G. W. Dowell 



Long a favorite of the Brigade, the Log added new life to its 
layouts during First Class year to produce a magazine of professional 
quality. Editor Steve Scheffer, assisted by Bob Kennedy, made sweeping 
changes in departing from the standard format, adding new features 
such as an Army-Navy Queen contest and socially inept Melvyn 
Flurgg. 

Bill Hamilton and George Dowell joined forces to give excellent 
coverage of our varsity teams during the sports seasons, and the picture 
of the Drag of the Week always captured midshipman hearts. 

Salty Sam always spun humorous yarns about the Executive 
Department and their misguided efforts, and kept his mysterious identity 
well-hidden throughout the year. 

This combination of superb photography, art work and feature 
stories made the bi-weekly one of the finest college magazines, and one 
of which we were justifiably proud. 




454 





"Sports, photos, and features" was the 
fomiula for the '60 Splinter. As a result, the 
popular bi-weekly enjoyed one of its most 
successful years. 

The Splinter always provided interest- 
ing information and accurate statistics on the 
Varsity and intramural teams during the vear. 
In addition, the magazine offered photos of 
the major events at the Academy, and }>eriodi- 
cally included fiction and other features for 
the readers' pleasure.

Under the comjjetent guidance of Director Jean

queraders successfully strayed from the tradition of the 
usual all-male comedy })erfonnance l)y presenting an 
absorbing drama with nine female parts. They did, how- 
ever, maintain their fine tradition of providing outstand- 
ing entertainment for the Brigade. The fine performances 
turned in by the players proved the talents of the Brigade 
to be many fold.

through an extensive poster and radio campaign, 
and became one of the entertainment highlights 
of the year.

tion, some club members conducted 
a research program for BuShips, in- 
volving the testing of various hull 
forms. 




462 



ENGINEERING CLUBS 



The Engineering Clubs offered an outlet for 
Midshipmen in the three fields — automotive engineer- 
ing, naval construction, and aeronautical engineering. 
Use of Academy facilities was allowed the clubs, giving 
their members an opportunity to supplement their 
theoretical knowledge with practical exjjerience in the 
areas of their interest. The clubs held lectures and 
made possible movies on all technical subjects to the 
Brigade. In addition, the clubs sponsored a technical 
essay contest. 




AUTOMOTIVE 




The Automotive Engineering Clui) gave 
Midshipmen an opportunity to develop their in- 
terest in the design and maintenance of automo- 
biles and their engines. The Foundry was available 
for tlieir use, and became the \vorking area for 
various club projects such a^ the race tuning of 
a sports car engine. 

The Club's periodic meetings usually fea- 
tured movies of the more famous races and lectures 
by noted authorities in the automotive engineering 
field.

REEF POINTS 

ART AND PRINTING CLUB 




Careful revision of earlier issues was the key- 
note to the success of the 1959-60 edition of Reef 
Points. Editors successfully designed the "Plebe's 
Bible" to present the latest developments in technology 
and eliminated some of the older and less beneficial 
items from the book. 

The Trident Society was the parent organiza- 
tion of many committees and clubs covering the vari- 
ous phases of art and literature at the Academy, and 
co-ordinated the efforts of each of these groups. The 
Society also sponsored a photographic and art contest 
in the spring. 

Artistically inclined members of the Brigade 
found the opportunity to express their talents in the 
Art and Printing Club. The Club was responsible for 
many of the advertising posters and football banners.

velopments of the various serv ices. 

In addition to the professional articles. 
"Trident'" presented midshiptnan efforts in other 
fields, including selections of fiction and art. The 
combination of art, literature, and professional 
science always made the "Trident" profitable read- 
ing.

TRIDENT CALENDAR 

The Trident Calendar was an indispensable item for 
every midshipman. The pictures and cartoons presented a 
graphic display of Academy life, and never failed to entertain 
their readers. As advertised by the staff, the Calendar also 
made an excellent gift, and found its place on the desk of 
many a parent and drag.

Smoke Hall and the colorful costume hops 
owed much of their success to the efforts of 
the NA-10. With a wide repertoire, the band 
proved itself versatile by playing anything 
requested — be it Dixieland, progressive jazz, 
or dreamy music for dancing.

GLEE CLUB 




Glee Club gives concert in Memorial Hall 



The repertoire of the Glee Club seemed 
almost boundless — they sang chanties, love songs 
and Christmas carols with equal ease. Under the 
direction of Prof. Gilley, the group practiced 
weekly for their series of concerts presented 
throughout the year. Their schedule included a 
Christmas Concert at home, and engagements at 
conventions and colleges in the East. The high 
point of the year came in mid-March, when the 
group joined voices with similar groups from 
West Point and the Air Force Academy for a 
formal concert in the Opera House, St. Louis. 



The Concert Band was organized to provide 
a musical outlet for the instrument playing members 
of the Brigade, but soon assumed two other important 
functions. They seived as a pep band, playing at 
team sendoffs, pep rallies, football and soccer games. 
In addition to this important job, they presented thei' 
annual series of formal concerts in Mahan Hall and 
their enjoyable spring-time concerts in Smoke Park. 



CONCERT BAND 




During our last years, we saw radio station 
WRNV emerge from a small corner of Smoke Hall 
to their own impressive studios in the fifth wing base- 
ment. Built and serviced by midshipmen, radio Navy 
provided almost fifty hours [jcr week of recorded 
tunes from popular hits to quiet study music. On week- 
ends, music for the informal hops was provided by the 
studio. Besides furnishing the Brigade with music, 
WRNV supplied news, interviews, and football and 
basketball coverage of most away games.

per year, including one during June Week, the Con- 
cert Series presented such jx^rfonners as Joni James, 
the Kingston Trio, Maynard Ferguson and his orches- 
tra, and Louis Armstrong, drawing several thousand 
people for each concert. 




The Foreign Relations Cluh presented an op- 
portunity for the aspiring young officer to preview 
the world as he would face it upon graduation. The 
club presented many well-known experts in various 
areas of interest, supplemented by information 
}3resented by midshipmen themselves. Such topics 
as the advancing threat of Communism were con- 
sidered through informal discussions and lectures. 

Meeting periodicalK to discuss the milifar\ 
importance of developments in the politico-economic 
field, the Political Economy Club offered an op- 
portunity for members to express their ' iews in 
the field.

collectors of the Brigade to join together in their com- 
mon interest. Meetings were held periodically for 
trading and discussions. 

The desire to build a inodel airplane or ship 
could be satisfied by membership in the Model Club. 
Facilities and equipment were provided by the Club in 
the basement of Bancroft for every phase of model 
construction.

The House Library Committee 
supervised the watchstanders in the Regi-

of books within a few steps of their 
rooms.

The Sports Information Committee provided a weekly recapitulation 
of the varsity sporting events for those midshipmen who were unable to 
attend the various games. Their efforts helped keep alive the Navy spirit, 
especially during the long period of the "Dark Ages." 




SAILING 



There was always a chance for those who 
wanted to sail to try their hand at tiller and halyard. 
Whether it was knockabouts or Yawls, overnight sails 
or afternoons on the Severn, sailing always provided 
enjoyment and a chance to be on the water in other 
than steel ships.

YP SQUADRON 



The YP Squadron was organized to give mid- 
shipmen an additional opportunity to apply their class 
room studies in seamanship, navigation, conning, sig- 
nalling, and rules of the road in a practical situation. 
The Squadron took trips to various ports on the Bay 
in the spring and fall. Midshipmen did the planning 
and organizing of these trips, and in so doing, gained 
valuable experience and laid a foundation for their 
naval careers. 







FORENSIC ACTIVITY 



The Forensic Society provided yet 
another means for midshipmen to represent 
the Academy in inter-collegiate competition. 
An impressive format of home and away de- 
bates was scheduled each year, giving the 
competitors the important feeling of confi- 
dence when speaking in public, and in addi- 
tion, developing their knowledge in the fields 
discussed.

RECEPTION COMMITTEE 



C. D. Jenkins (Chairman) and Major Moody 



The Reception Committee was the official "wel- 
coming" group for the Academy. The members acted 
as hosts for visiting athletic teams, guiding them during 
their stay. From the many notes of thanks received 
from visiting coaches, we can feel sure that the Com- 
mittee did an excellent job of representing the Academy 
and spreading good will among the teams from other 
colleges and universities. 



PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE 

The Public Relations Committee was in a position 
analogous to the Public Information Department. It was 
their responsibility to provide liaison with civilian news- 
papers and magazines covering sporting events in the 
Yard and other notable hapjienings during the year. Dur- 
ing June Week, the PRC was especially busy, accommo- 
dating the overwhelming demand for coverage of the 
events of nation-wide interest.

Meeting monthly, the Photo Club was designed 
to help members build a photo scrapbook of their four

The Naval Academy Chess Club, a member 
of the Southern Inter-Collegiate Chess Association, 
was composed of 45 members. Of these, the top 
eight engaged such teams as Maryland and Prince- 
ton in an eleven-match spring schedule. Highlight 
of the year was the inter-service academy tourna- 
ment held at West Point. 



The weekly meetings frequently included 
lectures by prominent players and always provided 
an opportunity for members to sharpen their skill 
on the chessboard.

Under the able direction 
of Ed Besch. the Club often 
journeyed across the river to the

Ever since the days of the first Greek Olympic games, athletic 
endeavor has been held in high esteem by all peoples. The 
excitement of a contest of strength, endurance and skill is 
perhaps unequalled in any other field. It provides a unique stimula- 
tion to both fan and player which enables him to appreciate the ac- 
complishments of the human body. To some people, sports are a 
pleasure, to others they are a business. To some they are relaxation; 
to others they are a profession. But one thing is evident. Sports know ' 
no boundaries, for their appeal is universal. 

Here at the Naval Academy, athletics play a big part in the every- 
day life of a midshipman. Whether it be the nationally telecasted Army- 
Navy game or a company hand-ball match, the midshipman has a 
direct interest. His opportunities to participate in athletic activities 
are vast, and he will be sure to benefit from any such participation. 

What exactly is most beneficial about athletics is hard to say. 
Is it the element of competition, the development of a fierce, aggres- 
sive spirit, the desire to win? Or is it the fostering of a team spirit, a 
willingness to work together? Maybe it is the physical conditioning 
that comes from competition resulting in bodily strength and stamina. 
It is probably a combination of all of these, for all these help to create 
a better person. This creation is the greatest contribution that sports 
have to offer. 

We pause now to salute the athletes and teams we have seen at 
the academy. We salute them because of the diversion they have 
brought, because of the enjoyment they have given. We salute them 
for their victories, even for their defeats. We salute them because we 
believe better men are made because of them.

After posting a 4-4-1 season record and mak- 
ing several mediocre showings, NAVY was figured 
to lose the annual service classic by six points. As 
a matter of fact, about the only people who didn't 
expect ARMY to win were the Navy team and the 
Brigade of Midshipmen. However, spirit had been 
running high at the Academy for two weeks, and all 
hands expected an all-out effort by the Blue and 
Gold Team. They weren't disappointed. On the first 
play from scrimmage Joe Bellino took a pitchout, 
faked an end sweep and then threw his first pass of 
the season. It was inches too long for Dick Pariseau 
and Navy missed a touchdown on its first play. It 
was only a short time, however, until the Mids took 
Army's punt and marched 67 yards to score on 
Bellino's 15-yard dash up the middle and out to the 
sideline. Navy 6 — Army 0. After holding Army, 
Navy again took the punt, this time on their 36. 
Three plays later Bellino streaked 46 yards for Navy's 
second score of the afternoon. Navy 13 — Army 0.

Army then mustered a 65-yard drive, scoring 
on a pass play from Caldwell to Carpenter. Navy 
13 — Army 6. Navy took the kickoff and began the 
march for their third score of the day. Gambling on 
Army's 43 on a fourth-down and one-to-go situation. 
Joe Tranchini sent Bellino up the middle for 13 yards 
and the first down. A screen pass moved Navy to 
Army's 13 and two plays later Tranchini kept it on 
an option and bootlegged it around end for 11 yards 
and six points. Navy 21 — Army 6. Two 15-yard 
penalties set up Army's second touchdown and at 
halftime the score was Navy 21 — Army 12. In the 
third quarter Navy picked up where it left off as 
Bellino intercepted an Army pass and dashed 28 
yards to the Army 18. Brandquist moved the ball to 
the Army one-yard line, and from there Bellino scored 
his third touchdown. Navy 29 — Army 12. A poor 
Army punt set up the next Tar touchdown, and Tran- 
chini did it again on a two-yard sneak. Navy 37 — 
Army 12. A pass interception by Dick Pariseau made 
Navy a sure bet for its sixth touchdown, and the Mids 
got it on a two-yard buck by Ron Brandquist who 
played his usual fine aggressive game for Navy. 
Navy 43 — Army 12! Bellino set a Navy record for 
the classic with three touchdowns. Tranchini turned 
in an impeccable performance at quarterback. All 
the backs ran well and the line played its finest game 
of the season. NAVY 43— ARMY 12!

Homecoming at NAVY was celebrated 
with the dedication of the Navy-Marine Corps 
Memorial Stadium and a 29-2 whipping which 
was administered to the traditional Homecoming 
rival, WILLIAM & MARY. Joe Bellino of- 
fered a picture of things to come after five 
minutes of play as he streaked 45 yards from 
scrimmage to score Navy's first six points. Later 
ill tlie first quarter Joe Matalavage plunged from 
ttie one-yard line for Navy's second touchdown. 
In the second quarter Matalavage demonstrated 
his breakaway ability as he combined some 
power running with dazzling speed and raced 
85 yards to score Navy's third six-pointer. Jim 
Maxfield got into the scoring act during the 
third quarter on a sneak from the one-yard 
line. Navy's line played a fine game with 
George Bezek doing a standout job at end.

Haid-dri\ing fullback Jim Tenbrook picks up a first down. 



NAVY, after trailing 14-0 at halftime, made 
a dramatic comeback to beat MARYLAND 22-14 in 
Baltimore's Memorial Stadium. After setting up 
Navy's first two touchdowns in the third quarter, Joe 
Bellino took a Maryland punt on his own 41, hesitated 
to pick up a couple of blockers, faked out a tackier 
on Maryland's 40. and ran for the red flag in the 
coffin corner. A flying tackle missed at the two and 
Bellino put Navy ahead 22-14. With minutes left, 
Maryland took the kick-off and began a series of 
running plays, chopping up the Navy middle for 
three and four yards at a clip. Navy gave ground 
grudgingly and when the whistle blew the Terrapins 
were on Navy's one-yard line. The victory ended a 
five-game famine for the Midshipmen, who were glad 
to see Bellino running again for the first time since 
he sustained a leg injury against SMU.

NAVY lost a heartbreaker to one of its 
oldest rivals, the Irish of NOTRE DAME, at 
South Bend. The Mids marched the opening 
kick-off back 89 yards to score as Jim Maxfield 
sneaked over for six points. Navy converted, 
Notre Dame scored and converted twice, and 
with 47 seconds left in the first half. Maxfield 
hit Mankowich twice in succession to chalk up 
Navy's second touchdown. Navy failed to con- 
vert and Notre Dame led at halftime, 14-13. 
In the third quarter, John Hewitt recovered an 
Irish fumble and five plays later Maxfield threw 
a five-yard strike to Dick Pariseau for six 
points. Navy threw for two and failed. After 
Pariseau intercepted an Izo pass, Navy moved 
to the Irish 16. stalled, and brought in Greg 
Mather to kick a field goal, making it 22-14. 
Navy. Notre Dame scored again, passed for 
two. and tied it up 22-22. With only minutes 
left. Stickles kicked the 43-yard goal which gave 
Notre Dame a thrilling 25-22 victory over a 
fighting Navy team.

NAVY, obviously looking ahead to the season's 
big one, did all that was necessary to beat GEORGE 
WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY, 16-8, in the Navy- 
Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. After being held to 
a scoreless tie in the first half, Navy scored all 16 points 
in the second half. The first score came after George 
Washington muffed the second half kick-off on their 
own six-yard line. Navy held, G.W. kicked, and Navy 
moved from the 47 to the Colonial's 22. From there Joe 
Bellino took a Tranchini pass and ran 20 yards for the 
touchdown. The second score came on a three-yard 
slant by Joe Matalavage. Greg Mather added three 
points on a 19-yard field goal to finish the scoring in 
a Navy victory over a hard-playing Colonial Team.

A fired-Up FENN team remained 
undefeated by tying NAVY 22-22. at 
Franklin Field. The Mids scored first, 
with Bub Correll scooting 17 yards for 
six points in the opening minutes. Nav> 
stalled then, and the end of the first half 
found them trailing Penn three touch- 
downs to one. Correll and .Jim Maxfic^M 
combined to bring Na\ \ to life in the 
fourth quarter. Maxfield threw 29 yards 
to Correll for the Mids' second touchdown 
and then sneaked over from the one for 
the third, making it 22-19. Navy. When 
Ronnie Brandquist intercepted a Quaker 
pass on his own 25 with only four min- 
utes left, it looked like Navy had snapped 
their three-game losing streak. A fund)le 
on the next play, however, set up Penn 
in Navy territory. When the Tar line put 
Penn in a fourth-down, four-to-go situ- 
ation, the Quakers decided to go for a 
tie and kicked a 15-yard field goal.

A hot. humid night and a hot MIAMI 
team proved too big a combination as 
NAVY lost their third straight ball game, 
23-8, in Miami. The Midshipman line 
just couldn't manufacture any holes in 
the heavier Hurricane forward wall for 
Navy's .small, fast backs. Miami found 
the going easier as the game progressed, 
and Navv began to feel the effects of heat 
and humidity in which they had not 
worked since August. Navy's only score 
came at the beginning of the second 
half on Joe Bellino's one-yard buck. The 
score was set up by a prettv 42 yard 
sweep around end by Joe Matalavage, 
who played his usual fine game at full- 
back.

NAVY went to Norfolk's annual Oyster Bowl and 
lost 32-6 to the team which was eventually ranked number 
one in the country and finished the season undefeated. 
SYRACUSE served notice of things to come on its first 
drive, chalking up 56 yards on short chopping gains 
through the Navy line. The New Yorkers scored three 
more times, one touchdown coming on a pass interception 
and run-back by Art Baker, liefore Navy could register 
on the scoreboard. With the help of a 15-yard penalty 
against Syracuse for roughing passer Jim Maxfield. Navy 
moved the ball to the Orange 25 )ard line. From there 
Maxfield threw to Joe Matalavage, who took the ball on 
the five and bulled his way over to score Navy's lone six- 
pointer. Syracuse tallied again later on a pass interception 
by Weber to complete the scoring for the day. Although 
playing a definitely superior and much larger team, Navy 
played hard football, and in the process gained more 
ground against Syracuse theui any other team had during 
the season.

A tough day for Navy 




SOUTHERN METHODIST defeated NAVY 20-7 in 
Dallas, but it was a lot closer game than is indicated by the 
score. The outcome was in doubt until the last minute when 
SMU intercepted a Navy pass on their own five yard line and 
streaked 95 yards to make it decisive. SMU marched 67 yards 
to score on their first offensive series, the only time they moved 
the ball consistently against Navy's line. An intercepted pass 
set up SMU's second touchdown. Joe Matalayage scored Navy's 
only six-pointer in the second quarter on a one yard plunge. 
In the third quarter Navy reached SMU's six yard line and with 
four downs to go, couldn't score. Later, on third down, and 
with one yard to go for a first down on SMU's 20 yard line. 
Navy again lacked the necessary punch. And in the last quarter, 
the Mids reached SMU's 17. threw three incomplete passes in 
succession, then had a fourth pass intercepted and run back 
for a touchdown with one minute of play left. Navy outran 
SMU, 190 yards to 124, outpassed them, 125 yards to 8-k had 
22 first downs to SMU's 12. but couldn't punch over the big 
one.

tackle and the second on a thrilling 80 yard punt return. 
Navy's third touchdown came on a 50 yard streak from 
scrimmage by Joe Bellino. Joe Tranchini then took to the 
air and connected on a nine yard six -pointer to Tom Alhers-

Fencing reached a peak at Navy last year as the Pan American Games, 
the NCAA Championships, and the Maryland Divisional Championships 
found midshipmen taking first places in all three of the major events. Al- 
though Roland Wommack, epee champion, was lost through graduation, and 
Joe Paletta, foil champion, was ineligihle. Navy continued its winning ways 
through the 1959-60 season. Much of the credit here is due this year's 
captain, Al Morales, who won the saber championship last year in many 
of the competitions already mentioned. Of course, no small part of the 
credit is due to the outstanding coaching of Andre Deladrier who will 
coach the 1960 American Olympic fencers, which include Ensigns 
Wommack, Paletta, and Morales.

the area. Such teams as Temple and Manhattan, perenniallv 
good basketball schools, fell before the Navy onslaught, 
giving the Academy one of its best seasons on record. 
There were only two low points in the campaign consisting 
of a double loss to Duke University and a one-point loss 
to our arch rivals from the University of Maryland. Being 
blessed with one of the tallest teams in Academv history, 
the Navy squad combined this with a fast-breaking attack

Since the ' establishment of light- 
weight crew at USNA in 1950, the crews 
have produced some very commendable 
records. The 1960 season saw the team face 
lona College, Harvard, Princeton, Dart- 
mouth, Penn, and participate in the EARC 
under the coaching of Lt. Dave Pratt, 
USMC. The nine firstclassmen who set 
the pace were team captain Harry Butler. 
John Claman, Bill Davidson, Heisey Gard- 
ner, Rusty Hayes. Justin Wickins. Alan 
Williams, Neal Parker, and Charlie Rob- 
erts. 




First boat: Coxswain Bill Long, Joe Baldwin, Bob Wilson, Al Adier, Pete Bos, Howie Winfree, Gayle Thompson, Skip Sweetser, Bill Parlette. 



The Navy Crew started the 1960 season under the 
direction of Lou Lindsey, who replaced the retiring Rusty 
Callow as head coach. Having lost only one man through 
graduation from the shell that finished fourth in the 
Nation the previous year, Navy's crew was rated as a 
possible Olympic contender. 



Stroked by secondclassman. Joe Baldwin, and bol- 
stered by veteran firstclassmen, Skip Sweetser. Pete Bos, 
and Al Adler, the 1960 crew had much that it could ac- 
complish, and the spirit and means with which it could 
be accomplished.

VARSITY 
SAILING 






Varsity Ocean Sailing, a new Naval Academy varsity sport for 1959- 
60 finally won its long struggle for recognition. The team was led by captain 
Rick Johnson and coached by Cdr. Gibson and Lt. j.g. Schoettle. The fall 
season featured the one hundred mile Skipper's Race, and the spring season 
was filled with overnight racing as the Navy boats prepared for competition 
in the classic of East Coast yacht racing, the Newport to Bermuda Ocean 
Race. The skippers making the Bermuda Race were Dave Woodward, Rick 
Johnson, Jerry Cooper, and Tom Hoppin. 



Gunwales awash 



From the cold, blustery days of early March 
right on through to November, Navy's varsity 
dinghy sailing team spent their afternoons practic- 
ing for the big ones and their weekends winning 
them. The sailing skill of Captain Spence Leech 
and crew Bill Powell contributed much to Navy's 
fine showing in every 1959-60 regatta as did the 
patience and expert instruction of coaches Williams 
and Aston.

The tennis team was faced with the largest, and possibly the 
toughest, schedule of recent Navy teams, and was determined to 
make 1960 a winning season. Led by team captain, Dave Houghton, 
lettermen Nick Temple, Mike Willsey, Bill Moore, and Rick Fleugol, 
and with the aid of newcomers Bill Manning, Colin Fox, and Tom 
Quinn, the team was equal to the task. Injected with the knowledge 
and enthusiasm of Coach Bos, the team vowed to cap the season 
with an age old Navy tennis tradition and hand Army its eleventh 
straight tennis defeat at the hands of the midshipmen.

INTRAMURAL SPORTS 




These three pages are dedicated to the average 
midshipman, the man who never f|uite "made the 
varsity" but who put out three seasons a year for 
much less reward than that received by varsity com- 
petitors. There is a great variety of intramural sports 
available for midshipman participation and the pic- 
tures on these three pages are representative of scenes 
which may be seen in the yard any weekday afternoon.

Underclass 

Section Edited bv I. FRANCIS BONIFAY 



Naturally the greatest part of the Brigade is composed of the 
underclass. They are its bulk, its spirit, its strength. It is 
they who will someday head the Brigade. It is they whom we 
leave behind hoping we may have helped to guide them in ways of 
the highest ideals of leadership. 

Each class assumes a greater responsibility and a more difficult 
task as it advances in seniority each year. We of the graduating class 
have a vast new world before us with its newness and almost unlimited 
opportunities. For the underclass the next step is not so large, yet - 
there is a step. Every member of every class must take the step with 
an increasing awareness of his duties that he may be prepared for the 
greater strides he may desire to attempt during his career. ^*«^ 

We leave for the underclass a responsibility to the Brigade, to 
the Navy, to the nation. Each succeeding class in its turn will shoulder 
a mandate from the peoples of our country and from the men of our 
Navy that the Naval Academy continue to produce young officers of 
the highest caliber possible. It is oftentimes easy to lose sight of the 
grand ideals we should abide by in the pressing problems of our daily 
routine. But these ideals should never be lost and the underclass must 
learn to appreciate and uphold them always. This requires their every - 
day usage so that every graduate may be aware of their value. This 
responsibility continues from plebe year through graduation, for to 
attempt to absorb all one should know of character and honor in the 
final year is a folly. 

We hope we have led the underclass in a firm, honorable, and 
just manner. We hope they have appreciated the problems and dif- 
ficulties we have met as the senior class at the Academy. When we 
leave at graduation, to you the underclass, we wish a bountiful sup- 
ply of good luck, and hope we have in some way aided or guided you 
in the path of a successful career.

CHAIN OF COMMAND— Admiral Nimitz is shown affixing his signa- 
ture to the instrument of Japanese Surrender aboard the U.S.S. Mis- 
souri in Tokyo Bay in September of 1945. This momentous event 
represents the re-establishment of peace throughout the world, and 
underlies the necessity of continuing to develop such great leaders 
to guide tomorrow's world. 



BIOGRAPHIES — Introducing this section of the graduating class of 
1960 is a photograph of the Brigade of Midshipmen taken during the 
march-on ceremonies preceding the Army-Navy football game at 
Municipal Stadium, Philadelphia, Pa. The rivalry of this contest 
between the military academies is one shared by naval personnel across 
the nation, from the ships at sea, and from all corners of the earth. 





The Class

.;Vi '. 




ACADEMICS — The photograph shown is indicative of the means by 
which the mission of the Naval Academy is fulfilled. The scene is 
that of a Midshipman in his room in Bancroft Hall studying one of 
the many subjects designed to produce officers of the highest order. 



Morally, Menially, Physically 



YARD — This reproduction of Bancroft Hall wrapped in snow is only 
one of the memories which will be carried with us upon graduation. 
The traditional beauty of the Yard during all seasons of the year 
provided us with an unparalleled environment in which to spend oui 
days as Midshipmen. 





FOUR YEARS — Pictured is a typical scene acted out daily by 
Mids'hipmen in the normal routine of Academy life. This picture is a 
fitting opening to the section of the book which serves as a record 
of the many and varied experiences of the Class of 1960 during its 
four years at Annapolis. 



Four Years 



598 



FEMMES— Within the crowded schedule of a Midshipman's life, there 
can always be found time to relax and enjoy the many social functions 
which are a part of the Academy. This photo was taken at a reception 
for Midshipman stripers given by Rear Admiral and Mrs. Melson at the 
Superintendent's residence. 




Frmnies 




ACTIVITIES — Tliis scene was taken at the 1958 Brussels World's Fair 
to which many of the Class of '60 were visitors during their cruises 
and leaves. This setting, depicting areas of world achievement and 
activity, aptly introduces the activities of the Brigade and sustains the 
international theme of the book. 



Vctivities 



SPORTS — The Olympic torch shown here at the 1956 Olympic Games 
in Melbourne is the traditional symbol of these ancient games partici- 
pated in by the outstanding athletes of all countries. These represent 
the pinnacle of amateur athletic achievement and the photograph is 
well suited to introduce the portion of this book depicting the many 
athletic endeavors undertaken by members of the Brigade. 




Sports 




UNDERCLASS— Many classes will fullou the Class of 1960 at the 
Naval Academy and so it is fitting to recognize "those we leave 
behind" as they have been a part of the Brigade which we lead, and 
they will join us as brother officers. The photograph shown was 
taken at a team send-off and is indicati\i' nt the strength and spirit 
of all the members of the underclass. 



I ndcrclass 



ADVERTISING — This scene is one showing activity on the floor 
of the New York Stock Exchange. Individual part ownership in the 
industries of this country is a great part of the American way of 
life, and from this institution is derived another facet of the American 
scene — large scale advertising. Each depends upon the other and 
together they certainly helped to make this book a reality.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 



To list individually all the credits and acknowledgements due 
in the production of this book is probably an impossible task. 
However, it is wished to make special acknowledgement to 
those upon whom we principally relied for professional services and 
for photographic assistance. 

We are indebted to Mr. Tom Murray and Mr. Henry Wittich, 
Jr. of Taylor Publishing Company, and Mr. Harry Horton of Apeda 
Studios for their valuable assistance in the printing, publishing, and 
photographic areas respectively. 

The color photograph of the Brussels World's Fair on pages 
438 and 439 was made available by World Wide Photos, Inc. The 
transparency of the Olympic torch on pages 482 and 483, and the 
print depicting the New York Stock Exchange on pages 607 and 608 
were furnished by United Press International of New York. Brown 
Brothers Studio of New York supplied the sea scene which appears 
on page 6. Additional sports photographs were obtained from United 
Press International, the Boston Globe, and from Mr. Stu Whelan of 
Annapolis. The color photograph of Admiral Nimitz was made 
available by the Office of Information of the Navy Department in 
Washington, D. C. 

Many P.I.O. departments and photographic laboratories of 
ships and shore facilities throughout the Navy generously supplied 
photographs to the staff. Chief among these were the Naval Photo- 
graphic Laboratories of Washington, D. C, the U. S. Naval Academy 
Public Information Office, and the Photographic Laboratory at Pen- 
sacola Naval Air Station. 



POSTLOGUE 



As we end the story of our four years together at the Acad- 
emy, we can see the concentrated effort to mold our charac- 
ter to fit the difficult tasks that lie ahead of us. We were shown the 
ways of honor and self-discipline that we might take our rightful 
positions in the world today. We were guided in those paths to strong 
character, moral strength, and outstanding leadership. 

For us it is mandatory that these personal goals be reached, 
for to realize the ideals to which this Lucky Bag is dedicated, we must 
have men of strength and courage, of honor and integrity, of in- 
telligence and goodwill. We must have men who are dedicated, men 
who can cooperate, men who can see that the good of our country is 
closely related to the good of all nations. 

Our Academy is an institution created for the formation of 
these qualities. Its graduates can exert a profound influence on the 
winning of these ideals. 

In ending our careers at Annapolis and with these last few 
pages of our history of these careers, let us, you and I, as officers 
in the service of our country and as Americans, be particularly mind- 
ful of the value and importance of this concept, so that we may some 
day see world-wide cooperation and an everlasting peace.

Certainly economics plays a great part in our twentieth cen- 
tury way of life. Each country's national policy serves in 
part to implement domestic economic policy, and internation- 
al trade plays an integral part in the employment of world resources. 
The navies of the free world have always performed the mission of 
keeping the sea lanes open in order that international trade might 
prosper. Economics and world trade have assumed a position of great 
importance, and these forces will continue to be an important means - 
of achieving a world peace which is so necessary for the attainment 
of the goals of civilization. 

One of the most important facets of our world economy is that of 
advertising. Advertising serves as an index to the state of economic 
development which is a measure of man's ingenious use of his avail- 
able resources, his technical achievements and his managerial skills. 
Advertising may be carried on by the use of several mediums, pub- 
lications being one among the many. Certainly many publications 
are made possible or at least made more successful because of this 
collective body of advertisers who utilize this medium as a method of 
furthering their aims. 

Advertising has played a major part in making possible the 
production of this record of the United States Naval Academy's Class 
of 1960. The ultimate success of this book as both a source of mem- 
ories for the class and as a classic among yearbooks must be proved 
with the passing of time. The foundations of this hope for success 
can be directly attributed to the faith of those business enterprises 
and individuals whose advertisements appear on the following pages.

NewB&W 2-Cavity Boilers 

11 fast cargo ships get boilers with dual 
"walk in" access to superheaters to cut cleaning costs 

Something new in boiler operating economy is being built into eight Ameri- 
can Export Line ships — including the new machincry-aft type — and three 
new cargo liners for the Mississippi Shipping Co'iipany (Delta Lines). 
These ships will be powered by newly designed B&W Boilers, each with a 
double access cavity to the superheater. Each cavity is at least 14" wide. One 
is placed within the superheater loops, and the other between the superheater 
and the generating bank. 

This design innovation solves troublesome maintenance problems when high- 
slagging oils arc burned. Slag accumulations can be removed quickly and 
cheaply by water washing with every square foot of the superheater-gas sides 
readily reached for inspection, cleaning, or other maintenance. 
For more about B&Ws new 2-Cavity Marine Boilers . . . and how they can 
work for you, at a practical cost, write The Babcock & Wilcox Company, 
Boiler Division, 161 East 42nd Street, New York 17, N. Y.

Vought Divisions 
apply new knowledge 
to the new decade 



Scout research rockets are supplied to NASA 
by the Astronautics Division. 



/ 



A fourth version of the Crusader fighter is 
being produced by the Aeronautics Division. 



New knowledge is the springboard for most Vought 
projects, with many of them introducing new con- 
cepts as well as products — completely new attacks on 
familiar problems. 

Emphasis on research extends from the shop — 
where new materials and new methods of manufacture 
are under contract study — to pure research, which is 
the sole function of an entire division, Vought^s 
Research Division. Here scientists are mining new 
knowledge from many fields, including basic research 
into astronautics, electrogravities and the life sciences. 
Vought Aeronautics is producing the near-Mach 2 
Crusader fighter series, is developing the nuclear- 
powered SLAM (supersonic low-altitude missile), is 



carrying out antisubmarine warfare work for the 
Navy, and is represented in other fields ranging from 
battlefield weapons to pilot escape. Vought Astro- 
nautics, supplier of NASA's Scout research rockets, 
has designed a simulator to duplicate up to 17 differ- 
ent stresses of space flight. Vought Electronics is 
developing advanced antenna systems, support equip- 
ment and power controls, including the actuator for 
the Minuteman ICBM. The Range Systems Division 
is tracking NASA satellites, in addition to other Pacific 
Missile Range duties. 

All these activities of Vought's five divisions have a 
common significance. They are investments in the 
growing fund of knowledge that is going to help meet 
the challenges of a new decade ... a new era.

operational capability of the new missile- 
carrying submarines. When armed with 
Polaris missiles, these subs will repre- 
sent an unprecedented counter-punch 
capable of reaching targets 1200 miles 
away, from anywhere in the world's 
oceans. 

The Polaris concept places critical 
demands on the art of navigation. A sin- 
gle degree of error can result in a 1 7-mile 
error in a thousand-mile range.To Sperry's 
Marine Division— appointed by the Navy 
to Navigation Systems Management of 



the newest class of Polaris submarines- 
is assigned the job of assuring highest 
possible system accuracy. 

Working with the Navy's Polaris 
experts, Sperry engineers are installing, 
operating and evaluating instruments 
and systems for the Polaris at Sperry's 
"Navigation Island"— a shore-based 
replica of the navigation center in the 
Polaris submarines. Here installation and 
operating problems and techniques, 
maneuvers, emergencies, even the stars 
for celestial navigation, are "shot" under 
realistic conditions. 

One system is Sperry's navdac (Navi- 
gation Data Assimilation Center) — a 
computer which analyzes information 
fed to it from the navigation equipment 
that will eventually position the Polaris 



subs for missile firing. Basic to a number 
of the subs is Sperry sins (Ship's Inertial 
Navigation System) equipment. These 
and other advanced systems are being 
evaluated and refined. 

With the Navy's foresight in "inter- 
locking" all aspects of the Polaris pro- 
gram . . . and with the cooperation of the 
many leading industries which are con- 
tributing . . . the Polaris subs will soon 
be operational. Marine Division, Sperry

THE MARINES TAKE DELIVERY OF THE FIRST 

ROTORCYCLES 

AND A NEW ERA IN MARINE HISTORY BEGINS 

A new chapter is being written in Marine Corps history. Now the combat Marine has a new tool — the CYRODYNE 
YRON-1 ROTORCYCLE. These first delivered vehicles are for evaluation of the many tactical uses of which they 
are capable: 

Liaison — Reconnaissance — Aerial Photography — Wire Laying — Resupply — other combat tasks. 
The CYRODYNE ROTORCYCLE is considered by most of those who have flown and maintained it to be the easiest 
to fly and the easiest to maintain tactical flying vehicle ever built. These two outstanding features will provide a new 
degree of mobility and shock-power to the combat Marine. 

The construction of the CYRODYNE YRON-1 ROTORCYCLE is such as to be suitable for mass production, thus 
assuring low unit cost. This feature, combined with ease of maintenance and superior flying qualities, should further 
facilitate the task of the combat Marine. 

The YRON-1 ROTORCYCLE employs the Cyrodyne coaxial rotor system which gives it the additional feature of 
size compactness, thereby providing ready concealment and freedom to operate within otherwise inaccessible areas.

What is Value 
in an automobile? 




It's what YOU ivant. . . and get, . , in the Ford Family of Fine Cars 



Quiz a dozen people about value in an automobile and 
you're likely to get a dozen different answers. Value is a 
personal measure. Like beauty, it's entirely "in the eyes 
of the beholder." 

Value Is styling — to some. A look of distinction. 
Pleasing proportions. The tastefil use of chrome. Styling 
as you'll find it in the 1960 Ford, Falcon, Aferrury, 
Lincoln and Lincoln Continental. 

Value is performance. A smooth ride. Ease of handling 
with the accent on mechanical controls. Minimum main- 
tenance over the miles and years. Tlie kind of performance 
Ford Motor Company cars have made famous. 



Value Is economy. Efficiency that wrings top mileage 
out of every drop of fuel. Dependable, thrifty operation 
from hard-working parts. -Savings such as you've come to 
expect even from the miglitiest of Ford Motor Company 
V-8 engines. 

Value, of course, is much more, too. Extra comfort. 
Added convenience. High trade-in allowance. All these 
are "dividends" enjoyed by owners of our products. 

What is value in an automobile? It's what you want— 
and get — in the Ford Family of Fine Cars.

Nothing else pampers you with quite the same roominess and ride— and such serene silence— as this ever-lovin' 
'60 Chevrolet. That's because nobody else bends so far over backwards to find out what you want and bring it 
to you. For example, Chevy's the only car in the leading low-priced three to cradle you on coil springs at every 
wheel. And there are new body mounts— plus soft-spoken engines— to make your ride as quiet as a whispet. 
Check your dealer on all the ways Chevy's been thoughtful of you (including new, budget-pleasing prices). 

Roomier Body by Fisher (with a 25% smaller transmission 
tunnel for more foot room up front). 

Pride-pleasing style (combines good looks with good sense). 

New Economy Turbo-Fire V8 (makes friends fast by getting 
up to 10% more miles on a gallon). 

Widest choice of engines and transmissions (2^. combinations

Cheaper atomic power 
with ^ Atom Age Steels 

BEFORE ATOMIC POWER Can light our cities or run our industries 
efficiently, the cost of building and operating commercial atomic 
reactors must be reduced. The two big problems: high cost of nu- 
clear fuel and the need for better and less costly materials of 
construction. 

Firsthand information on the effects of radiation on steel has 
not been easy to come by. The start-up of the General Electric 
Test Reactor, near Pleasanton, California, and the Westinghouse 
Testing Reactor near Pittsburgh has enabled U.S. Steel to launch 
the first large-scale private investigation of irradiated steels. These 
explorations will be carried out in private test reactors, wholly 
financed with private capital. 

Today, U.S. Steel has scientists working full time at Westing- 
house and General Electric Atomic Laboratories; extensive applied 
research in nuclear steels is also being carried on at U.S. Steel's 
Monroeville Research Center. 

From these tests will come new and improved atom-age steels: 
stronger, more corrosion-resistant steels, steels that will hasten the 
advent of commercial nuclear power. The full effects of this vast 
U.S. Steel research program may not be felt for two, five, or even 
ten years. But, cheaper atomic power is on its way . . . because 
American industries like U.S. Steel are contributing to the research.

In engineering and manufacturing AMF has ingenuity you can use. 



He smashed the 
sound-in-water 
barrier 



Because its energy passes only 
through air, radar can pick up tar- 
gets hundreds of miles away. The 
ocean isn't so cooperative: water 
rapidly absorbs all types of energy. 
How do you breach this barrier to 
produce a really long-range under- 
water surveillance system? 

This AMF Anti-Submarine War- 
fare Specialist set his underwater 
sights on a range far over 100 times 
that of sonar. A conventional instal- 
lation able to accomplish this wonld 
be prohibitively big and expensive. 
So, he came up with a completely 
new method. A 6' x 12' unit puts a 
megawatt of power into the water 
with 100 times the weight efficiency 
of existing techniques and at a frac- 
tion of the cost. The name of this 
new system is amf.\R, for which a 
proposal has now been submitted to 
the Navy for consideration. 

Single Command Concept 

This contribution to the free 
world's defense is one more example 
of AMF's resourcefulness. 

AMF people are organized in a 
single operational uyiit offering a 
wide range of engineering and pro- 
duction capabilities. Its purpose: to 
accept assignments at any stage 
from concept through development, 
production, and service training... 
and to complete them faster. ..in

ELECTRONICS 
MISSION 




with the help of CREI 
technical education 

Throughout the Navy thousands of electronics 
personnel — with extra ainbition — supplement 
Navy training with CREI education. They're 
found in all commands — and include electronic 
ratings and many commissioned ranks. They 
receive (by mail from CREI) Navy-recognized 
electronics courses above and beyond the scope 
of rating courses. They pay their own tuition. 
They study during off-duty hours. They 
become better-informed electronics men — and 
better Navy men who by their interest- and 
advancement are better sold on longer Navy 
careers. 

E. H. Rietzke, founder and president of CREI, 
was himself a Navy Chief Radioman— and the 
first Chief Instructor at the Bellevue Naval 
Radio Materiel School. 

Full details of the CREI program — and five 
sample lessons will be sent without cost or 
obligation upon request. Please write to:

DOCTOR OF SHIPS 




Rick Bruhn specializes in preventive "medicine." 

Rick is the Mobil marine engineer in Hong 
Kong. His counterparts work in every major 
Free World port — more than 400. 

As you trust the skill, training and experience 
of your doctor, so do the men who know marine 
machinery trust the Rick Bruhns to diagnose 
their ships' needs and prescribe the right fuels 
and lubricants. 

Mobil know-how created the first and most 



comprehensive service of this kind. It helps 
make sure that goods you send or receive move 
without delay — that as a passenger you arrive 
and depart on schedule — that every voyage is a 
Bon Voyage. 

This is the master's touch in oil — servicing the 
world's mightiest warship, the world's fastest 
boat, every flagship of every leading ship line, 
two-fifths of all the world's freighters as well as 
the first atomic-powered submarine.

NAA is at work in the fields of llie future 




JET CADET 

He's destined to be tomorrow's man-in-a-missile. 
He and his plane will be the cornerstone 
of naval airpower— for a long time to come. 



When today's jet cadet becomes the man in command of a new Navy super- 
sonic manned weapons system, he'll add depth and flexibility to our deterrent 
power. For only a pilot can seize an opportunity or solve an emergency... 
only a pilot can be recalled or redirected. 

The ideal trainer for the new Mach 2 aircraft that today's jet cadets will 
eventually fly, is North American Aviation's "all in one" T2J jet — the first 
airplane specifically designed to meet all phases of the Navy's jet training 
program. 

The T2J is the latest in a long series of training aircraft built by North 
American Aviation for the Navy. 




Navy's T2J Buckeye Trainer, built by Columbus 
Division of NAA, is ideal trainer for Navy's new 
Mach 2 aircraft such as NAA's A3J Vigilante.

Greetings from . . . 

ADMIRAL JERAULD WRIGHT, USN, RETIRING SUPREME ALLIED COM- 
MANDER, ATLANTIC, OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION. 
AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, UNITED STATES ATLANTIC FLEET. Admiral 
Wrighf's specialty has been the co-ordination of the joint operations of naval, 
ground, air forces and amphibious warfare. The Admiral's experience and back- 
ground, his Allied training during and after World War II, and his close as- 
sociation with NATO during the past nine years have facilitated the formation 
of the world's first international Navy. This force afloat is an integral part of 
the defensive structure of NATO, an organization of nations dedicated to the 
preservation of world peace.

"Let us not forget sea power equals naval vessels ))lus bases 
plus merchant vessels." RAdm. Alfred Thayer Mahan 



Sea power. . . 
is ships, endlessly 

On the sea • under the sea • in port • on the ways • on 
blueprints • in the minds and hearts of all who would 
protect America with strength 

Westinghouse is helping to build these ships— of any type 
or class— with the industry's most complete line of propul- 
sion and auxiliary equipment. Westinghouse facility for 
engineering, research and production will continue to keep 
American fleets the free-world syml)ols of power and hope.
